Refractron’s HIPed alumina toughened zirconia (ATZ), made in Rochester NY, is a truly exceptional material for severe applications that demand wear resistance, strength, and fracture toughness. It is a composite material consisting of small alumina particles in a YTZP matrix. It is used to make components like wire guides, dies, MWD rotors and drilling nozzles. ATZ parts can be polished to a sub Ra micron finish and our machinists can control dimensions to .0002” (.005mm).
