Zirconium is a chemical element with the symbol Zr and atomic number 40.

Zirconium is a lustrous, off-white, soft, malleable, malleable metal that is solid at room temperature but hard and brittle at lower purity levels. Zirconium is a transition metal very similar to hafnium and, to a lesser extent, titanium. Zirconium is used primarily as a refractory and opacifying agent, although in small amounts it is used as an alloying agent because of its strong corrosion resistance.
Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, zirconium is often used as an alloying agent in materials exposed to corrosive environments, such as surgical instruments, filaments and watch cases.
The cladding of nuclear reactor fuel consumes about 1% of the zirconium supply, mainly in the form of zirconium alloys. Desirable properties of these alloys are low neutron capture cross sections and corrosion resistance under normal service conditions. To this end, efficient methods for removing hafnium impurities were developed.
Materials made from the metals zirconium and ZrO2 are used in space vehicles that require heat resistance.
