This company has produced 3 mol % yttria-stabilized zirconia (3YSZ) for high-strength structural ceramics. Manufactured to ensure retention of an intrinsic nanostructure, the 3YSZ powder can provide the advantageous properties associated with small grain sizes, including high chemical homogeneity and density. Applications include technical ceramics such as valves and process equipment.
The nanostructured 3YSZ is produced via patented emulsion detonation synthesis (EDS) manufacturing technology, which can ensure an even distribution of yttria throughout the zirconia lattice. This high chemical homogeneity reportedly overcomes brittleness and supports a constant coefficient of thermal expansion, negating any risk of thermal stress and subsequent material fracture for steadfast reliability.
