Yttrium Stabilized Zirconia

Yttrium Stabilized Zirconia

Yttrium Stabilized ZirconiaYttrium oxide is used as a stabilizer, and this material is mainly tetragonal. It has the highest flexural strength of all zirconia materials, especially when sintered and pressed. Yttrium-stabilized zirconia has a fine grain size and is suitable for use in cutting tools due to its high wear resistance for cutting a very sharp corner. The excellent crystal grains make the produced ceramics dense in density, less pores, excellent mechanical strength, corrosion resistance, impact toughness, thermal shock resistance and extremely low thermal conductivity. Due to these characteristics, yttrium-stabilized zirconia is widely used in semiconductor, petrochemical, photovoltaic new energy and other industries.

Yttrium-stabilized zirconia can be used to make crucibles for vacuum induction melting, high-purity zirconium sizing nozzles or zirconium composite long nozzle bricks for steelmaking, etc., and to make furnace linings and gas reaction furnace linings with high temperatures above 1800 °C brick. Because of its semiconductor properties, zirconia products can be made into high temperature electric furnace heating elements, high temperature furnace tubes, wire drawing dies, etc. It can also be made into zirconia ceramic components for continuous temperature measurement of high temperature solutions and zirconia components for various oxygen determination instruments. Fused zirconia sand can be used as aggregate for zirconium unshaped materials, foundry sand for titanium alloys and plasma spraying materials. With the development of science and technology, the use of stabilized zirconia is constantly expanding to different fields.
