thank you Tif, you were quicker than me again!
fantastic job Ariel thank you!!
Nothing to worry about. You are just getting older
ahahaha, yes I do!
Hi, can anyone please tell me if zirconium springs should be attracted to magnets. Curious as I thought not but find my springs are.
Yes, it should be attracted to magnets.
Accordingly to what I just have read, Zirconium is a "Paramagnetic".
"Paramagnetism is a form of magnetism whereby certain materials are attracted by an externally applied magnetic field, and form internal, induced magnetic fields in the direction of the applied magnetic field." (Wikipedia extract).
Technical data for Zirconium:

WOW! Thanks Ariel, that was quite amazing reading.
The reason the color turns black is because the zirconium coil is being heat anodized. I'm familiar with Zr when it comes to knife collecting and some of the beads that are made from pure Zr. It can turn other colors, be polished, made matte black, gloss black, etc. This shouldn't be confused with burning the coil, carbon build-up or any materials that have come in contact with zirconium. Rest assured that it's just the anodizing process that can be done with heat or in a more controlled environment with electrical current.
Here are some examples of solid zirconium items I have in my collection. Zirconium is highly prized in these examples because titanium can't be anodized black.
An amazing bead that is solid zirconium; Pete managed to get three different finishes. This bead illustrates the shiny silver - black anodized portions of the Zr coils after being heated a few times.

I am not familiar with this prossedure but it looks awesome Prong!!
I think you're right... thanks for the infos buddy
Hey Imeo! I'm just trying to help people understand how versatile elemental zirconium really is. As you've pointed out, it's used in the dental and medical fields for its biocompatibility. I wanted to highlight what else zirconium can and is used for. In addition I hoped to explain the anodizing process that the coils undergo when applying heat and electrical current. I got a little long-winded, for that I apologize.
My major reason was to explain that the black area on zirconium coils isn't burnt and hasn't decreased in diameter nor mass; it's just been anodized black as a natural process of elemental (pure) zirconium.
I totally understand prong and I want to thank you for the great info.!!
Great info, thanks..
With thesee advantages, I must use zirconium wire on tilemahos armed. But on table, tcr values seeming as below;
Known working values:
So, which value I must set it?
0,0044 or any value between 0,00088 with 0,00120.
And, what about compensate temp on mod? it's seeming 23 degree for me now..
0.00100 is the right value Meh
I set it 00120 untill now. Changing as 00100 immediately. Thanks for your help.
I would try to source some Zirconium wire locally is it ok to ask for the detailed specks.
Here's a perfect example of a knife maker that not only makes a mod but also makes solid zirconium 510 tips that have been anodized black and polished.
Zirconium Vape Tip
wow, it looks stunning Prong!!!!
Is it possible to tell me what type of Zirconium wire to use I would like to source some here in Canada. I guess what composition of Zirconium wire.
