Zirconia toughened alumina (ZTA) has mechanical strength and wear resistance and can be used as an ideal material between zirconia particles and alumina. It was established that ZTA ceramic material is stronger and tougher than regular alumina ceramics.
Typically, ZTA contains 10-20% volume of ZrO2 in alumina. Depending on the percentage of content, the properties of the ceramic can be tailored to suit the application in question. Because of the high price of pure zirconia, ZTA with good toughness is a good choice.
Advanced Ceramic Materials is a specialist supplier of zirconia toughened alumina products of highest quality for a wide range of applications.
|Elasticity||45-49 x 10^6 psi|
|Flexure Strength||100-145 ksi|
|Fracture Toughness||5-7 MPa m^1/2|
|Coefficient of Thermal Expansion||8.0-8.1 x 10^-6 1/C|
|Thermal Conductivity||20.0-21.0 W/mK|
|Shock Resistance||325 °C|
