Applications

Zirconium (IV) fluoride (ZrF4) or Zirconium tetrafluoride is a component of ZBLAN fluoride glass. It is the main component of fluorozirconate glasses. Zirconium fluoride powder is also used in optical fibers and other optical materials.
Zirconium fluoride can be mixed with other fluorides as a coolant for molten salt reactors. When zirconium fluoride is mixed with sodium fluoride, this fluoride mixture is a candidate coolant for the Advanced High-Temperature Reactor, one of the nuclear reactor types.  Together with uranium salt, zirconium fluoride can be a component of fuel-coolant in molten salt reactors. Mixture of sodium fluoride, zirconium fluoride, and uranium tetrafluoride (53-41-6 mol.%) was used as a coolant in the Aircraft Reactor Experiment. A mixture of lithium fluoride, beryllium fluoride, zirconium fluoride, and uranium-233 tetrafluoride was used in the Molten-Salt Reactor Experiment. (Uranium-233 is used in the thorium fuel cycle reactors.)
