Components made of zirconia can withstand the highest loads. The ceramic material is used in numerous applications due to its high mechanical strength, resistance to wear and corrosion as well as low thermal conductivity. It also has a high fracture toughness and can withstand considerable loads without breaking. Zirconia is also versatile in metal-ceramic composites. Coupled with our know-how in joining technology, components for special applications can be realised. Zirconia is, therefore, ideally suited for use in a wide range of industries, from mechanical and plant engineering to the oil and gas industry.


The most important material properties of zirconia in brief:

  • Very high fracture toughness
  • Very high bending and tensile strength
  • High wear resistance
  • High compressive strength
  • Durability
  • Very low thermal conductivity
  • Thermal expansion, like cast iron
  • E-modulus comparable to steel
  • Oxygen ion conductivity
  • Outstanding tribological properties
  • Excellent surface finish and sharp edges possible
