In order to build a long term, trusted partnership, we have a dedicated quality control system to ensure the consistency of every batch we produce in accordance with our customers` application needs. Each order is custom-tailored through an in depth study and understanding of the particular needs of our customers, from product specifications, test method, order placement, and packaging, all the way to final delivery.

Each product batch is accompanied by our Certificate of Analysis, outlining the specific product parameters request by each individual customer, as well as detailed information on our test methods. The quality and safety of our products are further guaranteed through accreditation by the National Laboratory Accreditation, which is in line with international industry regulations for chemical products. In addition, we provide legal documentation in compliance with international shipping and import/export regulations, to ensure the timely delivery of our products.

As testament to our efforts and commitment, Monokem has received ISO 9000 certification in compliance to international standard of quality management system.

At Monokem, we believe that success is dependent on providing mutually beneficial solutions. Thus, our Research & Development, Quality Control labs and Technical Teams continue to develop and improve our manufacturing processes and services, so that we may contribute to the success of our partnership.

Zircon is a remarkable mineral, if only for its almost ubiquitous presence in the crust of Earth. It occurs in igneous rocks (as primary crystallization products), in metamorphic rocks and in sedimentary rocks (as detrital grains). Large zircon crystals are seldom abundant. Their average size, e.g. in granite rocks, is about 0.1 - 0.3 mm, but they can also grow to sizes of several centimeters (a few inches), especially in pegmatites.

Owing to their uranium and thorium content, some zircons may undergo metamictization. The processes, related to internal radiation damage, partially disrupt the crystal structure and partly explain the highly-variable properties of zircon. As zircon becomes more and more modified by internal radiation damage, the density decreases, the crystal structure is compromised, and the color changes.
