High strength and toughness(Bending strength: 800-1000 Mpa; Fracture toughness: 6-10 Mpa.M1/2; Vickers Hardness: 12-13 Gpa)
High abrasion and corrosion resistance
Low coefficient of thermal expansion
Superior load bearing capability
High grinding efficiency and long service time.
Zirconia Oxide Balls can be operating two to three times longer than metal or carbide in certain applications, zirconia oxide is superior in corrosive and erosive environments. Being lighter in weight also helps reduce damage to mating components.
Zirconium Oxide ZrO2 (also known as zirconia) is a material with very high resistance to crack propagation. Another outstanding property combination is the very low thermal conductivity and high strength.
Used in applications such as precision bearings, pumps and valves, check valves, flow meters, and measurement instruments that operate in aggressive environments. They are used in the medical field as this is a very pure material as well as in grinding and milling functions.
