Mechanical strength, wear and chemically resistant - predestind for highest demands
ZMK 3.5 is also Zirconia stabilized by Magnesium oxide (MgO) but has a yellow coloration. This material has superior chemical and mechanical properties. ZMK is more stable than Yttria stabilized Zirconia in high temperature, (220°C/428°F) and above), and high humidity environments.
The materials partial stabilization provides impact resistance and durability, making it suitable for use even in cyclic fatigue environments. Low thermal conductivity and a linear coefficient of expansion make ZMK 3.5 an ideal choice for ceramic-to-metal assemblies. In addition, this material has high mechanical strength and, at the same time, high chemical resistance.
This type of Zirconia is also suitable for the production of ceramic bearings, pump pistons, precision valve seats, balls, seals, as pipe guides for pipe forming. Components for drilling tools for oil and gas extraction can also be produced.
