3 mol % Yttria-stabilised Zirconia (3YSZ)

Our 3YSZ nanostructured powder is designed for structural ceramic applications, offering high strength, enhanced fracture resistance and excellent tribological performance to endure physically demanding applications. 

Its inherent nanostructure provides excellent sinterability enabling effective processing at temperatures lower than conventional micropowders, retaining the powder’s nanostructure for improved ceramic properties. 

Developed and processed to enable ease-of-handling, our 3YSZ powder can be provided in an application-specific form:

  • Ready-to-press spray-dried granulated powder with binder 
  • Highly loaded aqueous-based suspensions or slurries 
  • Highly loaded ethanol-based suspensions or slurries 
  • Spray-dried granulated powder for de-agglomeration at the client site

Our 3YSZ powder properties

Our 3YSZ is manufactured using our proprietary EDS technology , which ensures the powder is produced with the highest quality and consistency, offering:
  • High Activity Nanostructure
  • Zirconia Phase Stability
  • Chemical Homogeneity
  • Uniform Yttria Distribution
  • High Specific-Surface Area

The result? Ceramic components and coatings that exhibit exceptional wear-resistance, high component and flexural strength, and excellent durability - for complete confidence in the performance and life-time of your structural ceramics.
