Sodium hexafluorozirconate (Na2ZrF6) is a chemical compound which can also be referred to as sodium zirconium fluoride.[1]

It is an inorganic compound that is used in the manufacturing of optical glasses and ceramics, as well as in the production of other chemical compounds. Its use has also been researched in the production of red and blue-green phosphors.[2][3]
