Zirconium Sheet .040" x 6" x 12"
- .040" x 12" x 6"
Zirconium is like CP titanium in the way it works. It is softer then 6al-4v. The material is softer to cut but creates a bright, whiter spark then Titanium. It is more flammable then Titanium. Anodizes just as well as titanium. The biggest difference is when you heat color it, you get a blackish color to it.
* If you are building a Liner Lock folder then you can use it on both sides for your scales.
* If you are building a frame lock you can use it on your bolsters and on the frame side not locking side since it is not springy like 6al-4v.
IMPORTANT: FLAMMABLE!!! You really have to watch out when sawing that the chips don’t catch fire. Make sure there are no piles of shavings around your work area, can create a fire.
