Zirconium Acetate (ZAC)

CAS Number: 7585-20-8
Chemical formula: Zr(CH3COO)n
Used for crosslinking and catalyst applications

Zirconium Acetste (ZAC) is a clear, colourless, mildly acidic solution containing approximately 22% ZrO2. It is believed to contain neutral hydroxy-bridged zirconium species.

Zirconium Acetate (ZAC) is used in a wide range of applications including zirconium/wax emulsions for waterproofing, aqueous polymer emulsions, low smoke flame retardants for wool, refactory binders, catalysis and many more.

Typical Chemical Analysis

ZrO2 + HfO2*      21-23%
CH3COO              17-24%

*HfO2 accounts for approximately 2wt% of this total.
