Commercially pure Zirconium 702 exhibits good ductility even at cryogenic temperatures. It has 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 + Hafnium: 99.2 min 
Hafnium: 4.5 max 
Iron + Chromium: 0.2 max 
Hydrogen: 0.005 max 
Nitrogen: 0.025 max 
Carbon: 0.05 max 
Oxygen: 0.16 min 

Physical Properties

Thermal Conductivity: BTU-in/h-ft-° F (W/m-° K): 70 ° F (21 ° C): 13 (22) 

Modulus of Elasticity, ksi (mPa): 
14.4 x 103 (99.2 x 103) in tension 
5.25 x 103 (36.2 x 103) in shear 

Melting Point: 2550 ° F (1852 ° C) 

Mechanical Properties at Room Temperature

Elongation: 16% min 

Properties Tempered 

Zirconium 702 can be cold rolled to achieve the temper properties required by specific customers and/or manufacturing requirements. Contact Ulbrich Wire for details. 

Additional Properties

Corrosion Resistance 

Refer to NACE (National Associate of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations. 

Standard Wire Finishes

Extra Clean: (XC) Extra clean is also referred to as "bright annealed" or "bright annealed and cold rolled" 

Grease (round wire only): Drawn in a heavy grease produces an "Ultra bright" finish for decorative applications 

Soap (round wire only): Soap is used as a lubricant in the drawing process and is not removed. It acts as a lubricant during customer part forming operation. A soap finish is available in tempered products. 

Plated: Many plating options are available. 

*Special finishes are available: Contact Ulbrich Wire Sales with special finish and plating requests.


Continuous Coils 

Cut to lengths
