Zirconium oxide is a modern material, which has widely been used in technical ceramics for some years only. It has extraordinary properties which surely leave hope for a multitude of new applications to come.
QSIL Ceramics has 3 different zirconium oxide material qualities.
- ZMK3,0 (ZrO2-MgO) – This material is a partly stabilized, white zirconium oxide, used in case of high mechanical load.
- ZMK3,5 (ZrO2-MgO) – This is also a ZrO2 with MgO stabilization, however, this material reveals some yellowing.
- ZYK3,0 (ZrO2-Y2O3) – This is a partly stabilized, tetragonal zirconium with outstanding strength values.
