YTZP

Why Specify Partially Stabilized 3 mol% YTZP(H) Zirconia Parts?

  • Lengthen maintenance cycles, reduce costs, improve process reliability, and drive equipment performance
  • A sub-micron pristine, polished finish that can extend the life of mating components
  • 4 times stronger than alumina and sintered SiC
  • A corrosion resistance that often limits the life of tungsten carbide.
  • Weight reduction in moving parts traditionally made from metal & tungsten carbide

Refractron’s high purity, yttria stabilized, transformation toughened zirconia (YTZP or YSZ), made in Rochester NY, will reset your expectations for the performance of the parts in your critical applications like those in waterjet cutting, processing chemicals, guiding steel or dosing critical liquids. It is used to make components like a .25” (~6mm) piston, 4” (~101mm) ring, 12” (305mm) blade or a 18” (466mm) plunger. We can polish YTZP parts to a sub 0.5 micron Ra finish and control dimensions to .0002” (.005mm). Hot isostatic pressing (HIPing) creates a near perfect microstructure with the best ceramic properties.
