Zirconium Oxide(ZrO2)

Zirconia are ideal for extreme mechanical environments, particularly impact prone applications.

Zirconium Oxide offers high strength, wear resistance, and flexibility far beyond those of most other fine ceramics. Zirconia is a very strong advanced ceramic with excellent properties in hardness, fracture toughness, and corrosion resistance;

Properties of Zirconium Oxide

  • High mechanical strength
  • Enhanced fracture toughness (impact resistance)
  • Mechanical strength
  • High-heat resistance
  • Thermal expansion near metal
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Natural lubricity

Applications of Zirconium Oxide

  • High pressure equipment ball valve balls and seats
  • High density ball grinding media
  • Rollers and guides for metal forming
  • Thread and wire guides
  • Metal extrusion dies
  • Deep well down-hole valves and seats
  • Powder compacting dies
  • Pump seals and shaft bearings
  • Oxygen sensors
  • High temperature induction furnace susceptors
  • Fuel cell membranes
