Stabilised Chemical Zirconias
Monoclinic zirconium oxide can be restricted in its applications due to the phase transformations it undergoes during heating. These phase transformations lead to changes in volume resulting in structural cracking and failure. These phase alterations can be controlled by the addition of dopants known as stabilisers. Once stabilised, zirconia can be used in applications running at temperatures in excess of 2200 degrees centigrade. Zircomet offers a range of stabilised chemical zirconia powders. We are able to supply fine raw powders, ready to press powders and agglomerated and sintered powders.
