Zirconium oxide(Zirconia) has the highest strength and toughness at room temperature of all the advanced ceramic materials. it finds use in high wear and corrosion applications including valves, pumps and liners. It is the material of choice for the chemical processing and petrochemical industries.
There are several grades of Zirconia available, the most common of which are Yttria Partially Stabilized Zirconia (Y-PSZ) and Magnesia Partially Stabilized Zirconia (Mg-PSZ), Both of these materials offer excellent properties.
Y-TZP (Yttria Stabilized Zirconium Oxide) is a specialty material for critical structural ceramic applications. This material has the highest flexural strength of the zirconia materials particularly when processed using a HIP (Hot Isostat Press). The material’s extremely fine grain size makes it ideal for creating sharp blades that will, because of its excellent wear resistance, remain razor sharp, It is used in tooling and process applications for its strength, superior toughness, and excellent abrasion resistant.
Mg-PSZ(Magnesia-partially stabilized zirconia) has excellent mechanical properties, including high strength, fracture toughness, wear resistance, good thermal shock and low thermal conductivity, Due to these characteristics it finds use in high wear and corrosion applications including valves, pumps and liners, It is the material of choice for the chemical processing and petrochemical industries.
