Zirconia Toughened Alumina Ceramic
Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA) is high purity alumina mixed with zirconia, making a
tougher, stronger material.
Zirconia Toughened Alumina:
- Combines the advantages of partially stabilised zirconia (PSZ) and of alumina
- Almost as hard as alumina
- Almost as strong as PSZ
- From 3 to 10 times more abrasion resistant than high purity alumina.
|Fracture Toughness:||Klc - 7 MPa.m1/2|
|Flexural Strength:||910 MPa|
|Elastic Modulus:||290 GPa|
|Thermal Expansion:||9 x 10-6 °C-1|
ZTA is available in plate, rod, disc and bar. Please enquire about precision shapes and components.
