- Ceramic toughness: The toughness of zirconia ceramics is 4 times that of alumina ceramics. At the same time, when zirconia is dropped freely from a height of one meter, there will be some gaps, and the alumina will be broken.
- Density: The density of zirconia ceramics is twice that of alumina ceramics. In contrast, zirconia has better compressive properties.
- Friction coefficient: The friction coefficient of zirconia ceramics is only half of that of alumina ceramics, and the elastic modulus and hardness are mainly considered in the actual use process.
- Density and surface finish: The density of zirconia ceramic structural parts is higher than that of alumina ceramics. After grinding, the surface finish is higher, up to Ra0.2 or more, mirror-like, extremely smooth, and has a smaller friction coefficient.
- The lattice of zirconia ceramics is stable at high temperatures, and the lattice phase is damaged once it reaches normal temperatures. Therefore, 94.8% of zirconia reaches a stable state at room temperature, and a 5.2% stabilizer must be added. The powder is dry-pressed and sintered at 1560 ℃, the hardness and toughness will exceed 99% alumina ceramics, and its wear resistance and impact resistance will exceed 99% alumina ceramics. If no stabilizer is added, the ceramic is easy to crack, so zirconia balls are used as abrasive materials because they have great hardness and toughness.
