What is Zirconia?

Zirconia (or zirconium dioxide) is a series of crystalline solids and white in color and be used as industrial ceramics. This type of metal oxides is characterized by its extremely high abrasion resistance, chemical stability, thermal resistivity, and anti-corrosion performance.

Material Properties

Zirconia is incredibly resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and stress from repetitive impacts, and it is an ideal option used for grinding, milling, and bearing applications. With low thermal conductivity, it is also an excellent material to function in high temperature environment, as it maintain the same properties up to 1800 ℉. Furthermore, due to its excellent biocompatibility and fatigue resistance, zirconia was widely applied in dentistry to fabricate crowns, bridges, and implants.

Material Applications

  • Grinding and milling beads
  • High-performance bearings and bushings
  • Precision ball valves (seats and balls)
  • Cutting blades
  • Dentistry
  • Measurement instruments
  • Electronics
