Zirconium Oxide - Zirconia Y-TZP Ceramic
Zirconia (Zirconium Oxide) Y-TZP is a yttria stabilized zirconia ceramic material which features high strength and toughness making it a candidate material for use in severe structural applications which exhibit wear, corrosion, abrasion and impact. This material is also commonly referred to as Y-TZP or Yttria Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystal. Zirconia is designed to absorb the energy of impacts that would cause most ceramics to fail. Zirconia components can be fabricated into a wide range of precision shapes and sizes utilizing conventional ceramic processing technology and finishing techniques.
