Zirconium Acetate (ZAC)

Zirconyl Acetate, ZAC, ZAA, ZAH | 7585-20-8

Catalysis, pigment coating, and printing inks.

A mildly acidic clear, aqueous solution. Used for crosslinking and catalysis applications.

Zirconium Acetate (ZAC) is a clear, colourless, mildly acidic solution containing approximately 22% ZrO2. It is believed to contain neutral hydroxy-bridged zirconium species. This is beneficial for a wide variety of applications such as wax emulsions for waterproofing textile and fabrics, also used as a catalyst as it is great source of concentrated Zr ion and sodium chloride free.


Zirconium Acetate can withstand medium to long term exposure to natural temperature extremes. Precipitates formed due to excess exposure to extreme cold will in most cases readily re-dissolve. Hydrolysis which may result from prolonged high temperature exposure can cause irreversible damage.

Zirconium Acetate creates a strong crosslink between the water-repellent wax and textile substrates, as well imparts water repellency for multiple applications (paper, paperboard, coatings, paints and inks)

Compatible with various resins and binders

Great source of concentrated Zr ion and is sodium chloride free, making it ideal for catalyst applications

  1. Zirconium/wax water repellents for semi-durable textile fabrics and paper
  2. Catalyst for curing silicone resins in water repellent treatments of textiles and leather
  3. “Filling” or “Re-tan” for high quality leather goods
  4. Binder in catalysis applications
  5. Crosslinker for gels
  6. Adhesion promoter in water-based printing inks
  7. Component of corrosion inhibiting pre-treatment process for metal
