Zirconia Ceramics

Zirconia is a very strong industrial ceramic with excellent properties in terms of hardness, fracture toughness and corrosion resistance; it solves the most common characteristic of ceramics-high brittleness. Its unique crack propagation resistance and high thermal expansion make it an excellent material for joining ceramics and metals such as steel. Due to the unique properties of zirconia, it is sometimes referred to as “ceramic steel”.

Zirconia Components

Zirconia (ZrO2) Ceramics have the highest toughness and strength at room temperature of all the advanced ceramic materials. At present, it has been widely used in grinding balls, dispersion and grinding media, nozzles, ball valve seats, zirconia molds, micro fan shafts, optical fiber pins, optical fiber sleeves, drawing dies and cutting tools, wear-resistant knives, and other room-temperature resistant Grinding parts and so on. Zirconia is widely used in the fields of the thermal barrier layer, catalyst body, medical treatment, health care, textile, and so on.

This dense advanced ceramics material is usually precision ground using conventional diamond cutters and wheels. Machines used for precision grinding include:

  • Surface grinders
  • CNC milling machines
  • Jig grinders
  • Centerless grinders
  • CNC lathes
