Zirconium oxide

Zirconium oxide (Zr02)

Zirconia or Zirconium oxide is a chemical compound of Zircon and oxygen with the chemical formula ZrO2. With no pigment, it is an ivory-coloured ceramic. Zirconia is a multipurpose construction material with a very low thermal conductivity and high strength. Components made from this material are significantly more expensive than components made of alumina ceramics.

It is commonly used in dental industry (crowns and bridges), Automotive (bearings),Technical cutters, Pumps tubes & pipes industry, etc.
