Zirconia is a unique advanced ceramic - a chemical compound having the formula ZrO2.
Products manufactured from Tosoh's yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) powder exhibit superior mechanical properties such as high strength and flexibility. As a technological breakthrough, YSZ surpasses the strength limitations of traditional fine ceramics. Heat insulating properties and oxygen-ion conductivity indicate zirconia has potential for use in a wide variety of applications - everything from telecommunications to the new energy of the future and environmentally beneficial products.
Within its Specialty Materials Division, Tosoh Corporation’s zirconia powder production capacity ranks as the world’s largest.
Tosoh’s TZ Series of yttria stabilized zirconia powders is well known for its consistency and high quality. Zirconia injection molding compounds, injection molded components and YTZ® Grinding Media complete the basic product offering.
