Outstanding Mechanical Performance

Among all ceramic oxide materials, tetragonal zirconia stabilized with the addition of 3mol% Y2O3 (Y-TZP) exhibits at room temperature the highest performance in terms of:

     · Bending strength

     · Toughness

Tetragonal zirconia also enables the manufacturing of ceramic parts with:

     · Excellent surface finishing

     · Superior wear resistance

     · Outstanding corrosion resistance
