The ceramics sector is the largest market for zircon in terms of volume. Zircon is mostly used in this industry to opacify (or whiten) the ceramic body and surface. Zircon can be used as a fine powder in ceramic combinations to boost the body's overall whiteness or in engobes to create a white, opaque layer that conceals the colour of the body. Additionally, it serves as a raw ingredient in frit compositions that create glossy, opaque, white glazes for ceramic glazes in order to boost their opacity. Zircon greatly increases resistance to chemical and abrasion assault when utilized in surface glazes.
Zircon has a high refractive index, which makes it a good opacifier. Ceramics seem white, glossy, and opaque because to the visible light scattering properties of finely milled zircon grains.
Zircon opacifiers come in many grades.
