Zirconium 702 is a commercially pure Zirconium. It exhibits good ductility even at cryogenic temperatures and good strength comparable with other common engineering alloys. Zirconium is a reactive metal that has a high affinity for oxygen resulting in the formation of a protective oxide layer in air at room temperature. This protective oxide gives zirconium alloys their superior corrosion resistance.

Zirconium 702 can be cold rolled to various tempers. Contact Ulbrich Technical Service for additional information.
Refer to NACE (National Associate of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations.
#1 - Hot rolled annealed and descaled. It is available in strip, foil and ribbon. It is used for applications where a smooth decorative finish is not required.
#2D - Dull finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. Used for deep drawn parts and those parts that need to retain lubricants in the forming process.
#2B - Smooth finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. A light cold rolling pass is added after anneal with polished rolls giving it a brighter finish than 2D.
#BA- Bright annealed cold rolled and bright annealed
#CBA- Course bright annealed cold rolled matte finish and bright anneal
#2 - Cold Rolled
#2BA- Smooth finish produced by cold rolling and bright annealing. A light pass using highly polished rolls produces a glossy finish. A 2BA finish may be used for lightly formed applications where a glossy finish is desired in the formed part.
Polished - Various grit finish for specific polish finished requirements.
* Not all finishes are available in all alloys - Contact Ulbrich Sales for more information.
XC - Extra clean. Bright annealed or bright annealed and cold rolled
Grease - Ultra bright finish for decorative applications
Soap - Soap is not removed from tempered wire to act as a lubricant.
* Contact Ulbrich Wire for custom finishes.
