3 mol% Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia
Outstanding Mechanical Performance
Among all ceramic oxide materials, tetragonal zirconia stabilized with the addition of 3mol% Y2O3 (Y-TZP) exhibits at room temperature the highest performance in terms of:
- Bending strength
Tetragonal zirconia also enables the manufacturing of ceramic parts with:
- Excellent surface finishing
- Superior wear resistance
- Outstanding corrosion resistance
Saint-Gobain ZirPro offers world-leading 3mol% yttria-stabilized zirconia powders ranging from dry powder (CY3Z) suitable for injection molding or casting process to ready-to-press granules (GY3Z) used in uniaxial and isostatic pressing. Pigmented zirconia for decorative fine ceramic applications is also available. Please refer to ColorYZe page for more information.
All ZirPro powders are manufactured using a state-of-the-art chemical process to ensure excellent performance and consistent high quality.
