ZTA, a combination of zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide, results in a component 20-30% stronger* than an alumina component of comparable size. ZTA provides the higher service temperature of alumina and the toughness of zirconia and contains no mixed oxides. Ceramco’s ZTA is 85% alumina (Al2O3), 15% zirconia (ZrO2). Our blend is named ZTA8.
When compared to zirconia, ZTA possesses:
- Similar density
- Superior hardness
- Greater bend strength
- Lower coefficient of thermal expansion
- Higher thermal conductivity
Compare Ceramco production formulation's material properties.
As a result of these desirable properties, an increasing number of Ceramco’s OEM ceramic component orders utilize ZTA, meeting the necessary design criteria in which zirconia was initially specified, at a lower price point.
OEM Market Candidates for Ceramco ZTA Include…
- Lab ware
- Bio-medical devices
ZTA8 is the ideal material candidate to consider instead of alumina or zirconia. Although, the materials selection process is complex and important, Ceramco is an expert. Ceramco also offers numerous alumina and zirconia formulations, silicon nitride, as well as user defined materials, satisfying almost any OEM ceramic parts requirement. Please review and compare our inventory of production formulations.
