Innovnano to Showcase Zirconia Powders at Ceramics Expo
Innovnano will be attending Ceramics Expo 2016 April 26-28 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Innovnano will be attending Ceramics Expo 2016 April 26-28 in Cleveland, Ohio. Visitors to the Innovnano booth (#428) can find out how its range of novel zirconia powders can provide high strength for physically demanding applications, such as the moving parts of machinery and cutting tools. Visitors will reportedly also have the chance to enter a raffle to win a tablet. The tablet comes complete with a toughened case and screen protector, ensuring it is equipped for hard-wearing applications.
Innovnano’s nanostructured 3 mol% yttria-stabilized zirconia (3YSZ) is reportedly an optimized ceramic material for all applications that require strength, durability and hardness. With small grain sizes and high homogeneity, Innovnano’s 3YSZ is well-suited for hot and cold isostatic pressing (HIP and CIP), as well as uniaxial pressing. The result after pressing is a highly dense material for applications that call for strength and durability. The components produced following HIP are exceptionally hard (around 1,350 HV10), with a fracture toughness of approximately 6 MPa.m0.5 and a bending strength of up to 1,800 MPa. As a result, components and devices pressed from 3YSZ are suitable for demanding anti-wear applications. 3YSZ from Innovnano also offers improved phase stability, enhancing the durability and tribological performance of the final ceramic component.
Innovnano reportedly will also be showing 4YSZ powders and suspensions, which offer resistance to physical and chemical wear for extreme environments and the formation of shock-resistant thermal barrier coatings with low thermal conductivity. The company’s monoclinic zirconia (MZ) will also be showcased; MZ reportedly has good sintering characteristics for refractory strength and high temperature resilience.
“We’re looking forward to meeting everyone in Cleveland this month for Ceramics Expo,” said Paul Newbatt, sales and marketing director. “With modern manufacturing industries demanding high-quality materials to produce components with exceptional wear and abrasion resistance, the Innovnano range of zirconia powders with optimized properties offers the ideal solution. Come and visit us at booth 428 to find out how you could benefit from our powders’ enhanced characteristics and also enter our prize draw.”
