Ceramics

The use of zirconium oxides in advanced ceramics is well established, notably for their electrical, wear and heat resistant properties. Our doped and undoped zirconium oxides are vital ingredients in a huge range of industrial and domestic products.

At ambient temperatures, zirconium oxide has a monoclinic crystal phase, but reversible inversion to the tetragonal phase takes place at about 1000°C, in the absence of other components. The metastable tetragonal phase can be stabilised by the addition of a dopant material, such as yttrium or magnesium oxide. This addition will alter the physical properties of the ceramic produced. Please refer to our ceramics brochure for further details.
