With our advanced ceramic solutions, you can access a wide range of materials tailored to your project's unique needs.
Zirconia, dubbed ‘ceramic steel’, offers a combination of high hardness, wear and corrosion resistance, and exhibits one of the highest fracture toughness values among all ceramic materials. Its high thermal expansion and unique resistance to crack propagation make it an excellent material for joining with metals like steel. The biocompatibility of zirconia also facilitates its use in medical applications, such as for dental implants or for orthopaedic implants.
In addition to dental prosthetics and orthopedic implants, zirconia is also used for a wide range of industrial applications such as manufacturing cutting tools, wear-resistant components for heavy machinery, and high-temperature insulating parts, thanks to its outstanding hardness, thermal stability, and resistance to abrasion.
