High Purity Zirconia & Hafnia Samples Dispatched to Customers  

The Company has recently dispatched high purity samples of zirconia and hafnia (hafnium oxide) to several key potential customers. The provision of samples from the August - September Demonstration Pilot Plant (DPP) run has been a condition precedent to further discussions with these customers for the purchase of AZL's future products. 

Of particular interest are the ongoing investigations and market contacts which have confirmed the Company's view that the market for hafnium materials has substantial growth opportunities, reinforcing the potential for the DZP to be a major supplier over many years (not related to the production of nuclear grade zirconium metal).
