Zirconium chemicals, particularly zirconia, have recently garnered significant attention as advanced materials for a wide range of industrial and scientific applications due to their exceptional mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, and optical properties.

Zirconia, commonly referred to as zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), is the primary oxide of zirconium. It typically exists as white, odorless, and tasteless crystals that are almost insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid, and dilute sulfuric acid.

With the most prevalent being yttria partially stabilized zirconia (Y-PSZ) and magnesium oxide partially stabilized zirconia (Mg-PSZ)、Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA). Its unique resistance to crack propagation and high thermal expansion make it an excellent material for joining ceramics and metals, including steel. Given its distinctive properties, zirconia is sometimes referred to as “ceramic steel.”

The Aadvantages Of Zirconia Ceramics

• High flexural strength and hardness;
• Excellent fracture toughness – impact resistant;
• High maximum use temperature;
• Electrical insulator;
• Corrosion resistance in acids and alkalis;
• Modulus of elasticity similar to steel;
• Coefficient of thermal expansion similar to iron.

Finally, I hope this article can help you to deepen your understanding of the preferred raw materials for the preparation of zirconia ceramic .
