Florida Zircon Sands

DuPont's Florida zircon (zirconium silicate) sands are naturally occurring rounded-grain sands mined from our heavy mineral deposits in Florida. We chemically scrub these sands to produce clean products that are free of dirt and ultrafines, then calcined to reduce water and other volatile content.

DuPont offers five grades of Florida zircon sands that vary in the level of zircon and other heavy mineral content:

  • Premium zircon
  • Low alumina zircon
  • Standard zircon
  • Zircon T
  • Zircon M

DuPont Florida zircon sands have applications in many industries, such as foundry, precision investment casting, refractory, ceramic, glass, welding rod, and zirconium metal.
Each grade of Florida zircon sand is available in 22.7-kg (50-lb) multiwall paper bags, semi-bulk (2 ton or 4 ton) bags, or in bulk hopper cars or trucks
