Unlike other ceramic materials, zirconium oxide, known as zirconia, it is a material with very high resistance to crack propagation. Zirconium oxide ceramics also have very high thermal expansion. On the other hand, they are therefore often the material of choice for joining ceramic and steel.
Another outstanding property combination is the very low thermal conductivity and high strength. In addition, some types of zirconium oxide ceramics can conduct oxygen ions. Components made from this material are significantly more expensive than components made of alumina ceramics.
Zirconium oxide ceramics are used, among other applications, as auxiliaries in welding processes, as tools for wire forming, as materials for crowns and bridges in the dental industry, as insulating rings in thermal processes, and as oxygen measurement cells in lambda probes.
Zirconium oxide is widely used in production of cutters, drawing tools, pipes and tubes.For example, zirconium oxide can put a smile on your face. A wide range of materials and a number of different production processes yield dental prosthetic products with surface finishes that closely resemble that of a natural tooth: Zirconium oxide-Blanks of opaque or translucent material for bridges, crowns and veneers, hot isostatically pressed zirconium oxide for the production of implants and abutments and drill blanks of mixed ceramicor mucosal anchors aluminum oxide.
There are many advantages of zirconium oxide tooth such as pre-colored, homogeneous high material density and strength. Up to now, a wide range of applications could be covered with zirconium oxide translucent and zirconium oxide shine. Zirconium Oxide Bright is suitable for all treatments in the appearance of the surrounding tooth material.
