Urbanization of China and other developing countries continues to increase zircon consumption for production of floor tile, wall tile, dishes, sinks, tubs, and lavatories. 

 By 2020 it is projected that these applications will require more zircon than the world's current total production of zircon.  As these and other uses for zircon and zircon derivatives grow, the price will continue to rise.  Users will compete for the available zircon.  It's time to consider alternative minerals or mineral blends in your foundry coatings.  REFCOTEC can recommend a reduced zircon or zircon free coating for your application.
