The Use Of Zirconia Ceramic Blade

The Popularity of Zirconia Cearmic Blade

Zirconia Ceramic blades are becoming popular in recent years for its extremely high cutting edge strength and excellent flexural strength and hardness. The blade is made by sintering zirconia powder at high temperatures, which make it a dense homogeneous material with high hardness and sharpness. Zirconia Ceramic is known for its toughness, compressive strength and thermal shock resistance. Besides zirconia, it can also use ceramic like Alumina, Silicon Nitride and Boron Nitride. But material zirconia is more common.

Zirconia Ceramics Blade

Why It is Becoming Popular

Compared with traditional blade like steel or diamond blades, Zirconia ceramic blade has the advantages of high durability, sharpness and high level of chemical resistance. It is resistant to wear and tear, so it can be used for a long time. This makes it a cost-effective option for business.At the same time it can be sharpened to a fine edge, which makes it ideal for cutting application.
