Black Zirconium

a performance metal with the greatest design versatility

  • In its natural state, black zirconium is medium gray in color.
  • When heat treated, a lustrous black layer forms on the outside, which can be polished to a lacquer-like finish that won’t diminish over time.
  • It black, glossy shell is extremely scratch resistant; at 8.2, it’s harder than stainless steel.
  • Black zirconium can also be machined so that it’s matte, shiny or a mix of the two.
  • Zirconium alloys are used in exotic applications ranging from nuclear reactors to incendiary munitions.
  • Cutting-edge and masculine-looking
  • One of the more affordable metal options: a plain band starts around $300
