What is Zirconia Toughened Alumina? The zirconia toughened alumina (ZTA). is composed of zirconia & alumina. Zirconia, an oxide of zircon, is commonly added to materials due to its strength. Zirconia toughened Alumina generally has a zirconia proportion between 1/10 to 1/5. You can adjust the ratio to fit the specific product. ZTA ceramics provide the ideal balance between value and price. ZTA products perform better than regular alumina. ZTA products also cost less than pure zirconia.

Different between ZTA, ATZ
Zirconia toughened aluminum (ZTA), and alumina hardened zirconia [ATZ] have similar raw materials. It is important to not confuse these two composites. Alumina toughened zirconia, (ATZ), has a low ratio of alumina and zirconia. Zirconia hardened alumina is (ZTA), and the reverse holds true.

ZTA properties
One of the best characteristics of zirconia-toughened alumina is their high mechanical strength. This is due to a process known as stress-induced Phase Transformation toughening. At room temperature the zirconia toughened Alumina’s density is around 4.3g/cm3.
High heat resistance makes this material suitable for use in high-speed grinding machines. It has a working temperature of 1923K and a thermal expansion coefficient of 8.1×10(- 6) C. Additionally, the Poisson’s ratio, bending force, and elasticity of zirconia hardened alumina is 0.26130 ksi.

What advantages does Zirconia-toughened Alumina offer?
Its versatility is what makes zirconia hardening alumina so valuable. The first is that zirconia hardened alumina can resist temperatures as high as 1773 K. This makes them an excellent choice to manufacture equipment capable of enduring these extreme temperatures. Alumina zirconia hardened has a higher resistance to corrosion than normal alumina. It’s very strong.

Additionally, the surface of zirconia-toughened alumina is smoother than that of ordinary alumina. You can use it for parts of equipment that are susceptible to wear due to friction. A cost-saving composite, zirconia hardened alumina can be used because it costs less than normal zirconia and is more powerful than standard alumina. These materials can also be used in biocompatible applications. They have no side effects on human bodies.

ZTA uses
Valve Seal
Valve seals must be durable when choosing materials. Material durability is important. This standard is met by Zirconia-toughened Alumina and it’s commonly used to seal valves.


Biocompatibility is another characteristic of zirconia-toughened alumina. The composites can also be toughened and have high bending strengths. The zirconia toughened aluminum is an ideal material for joint replacement. Because it is biocompatible, it will not cause injury to the body. Its toughness means that it will be able to support body weight. It’s used commonly in hip replacement.

Cutting instrument
Zirconia hardened alumina from zirconium is wear-resistant and heat-stable. It also has friction resistance. It is an excellent material for cutting tools because of these properties. These materials are less costly than those used in cutting tools like diamonds.

Grinder wheel
A grinder’s most important component is the grinding wheel. Most grinding wheels are made from composite materials. Composite materials used in the manufacture of them include zirconia hardened alumina. It’s strong enough to be used in this way. It’s also strong and can be self-sharpening.

Immediate tooth
Due to its biocompatibility zirconia toughened is alumina, it’s commonly used in dental implant manufacturing. Alumina that is zirconia-toughened by zirconia can also be corroded easily. Zirconia dental implants can be made without any harm by being moistened with alumina.

Bushing
Bushings are used to fill in the spaces between these two components. A type of bearing. A finish is often applied to zirconia toughened aluminum. It’s an excellent bushing. A further reason why it’s used for bushing purposes is its high friction resistance.
