This is an interesting STD reaction in which platinum displaces carbon from zirconium, the Zr transfers from C to Pt.Zirconium carbide is a very stable material and the product is a stable alloy.The explanation is that Pt is an electron rich metal and Zr an electron poor metal. The substance is a stable alloy.
