Magnesium oxide partially stabilized zirconia ceramics have high oxygen ion conductivity, high strength and toughness, and good thermal shock resistance, and are extremely promising high-temperature functional materials and structural ceramic materials. Magnesium oxide is used as a stabilizer. This cubic phase material is packed with tiny tetragonal phase precipitates, resulting in very high transformation toughness. Magnesium-stabilized zirconia has high fracture toughness. It has excellent mechanical properties including high strength, fracture toughness, wear resistance, low thermal conductivity and good thermal shock resistance. Due to its resistance to wear and corrosion, it is mostly used in valves, pumps and gaskets, and is also a material in the chemical machining and petrochemical industries.
