Zircon vs. Infrared Transmitting Glass

Zircon belongs to the oxide-based engineering ceramics classification, while infrared transmitting glass belongs to the glass and glass-ceramics. There are 4 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (13, in this case) are not shown.

For each property being compared, the top bar is zircon and the bottom bar is infrared transmitting glass.
