3 mol % Yttria-stabilised Zirconia (3YSZ)

Our 3YSZ powder offers high strength, enhanced fracture resistance and excellent tribological performance for your physically demanding applications.
Its inherent nanostructure, formed as a result of Innovnano’s proprietary synthesis technology – Emulsion Detonation Synthesis (EDS), ensures 3YSZ benefits from improved chemical and physical properties. Compared to a microstructured powder, Innovnano’s 3YSZ exhibits increased hardness, flexural strength and wear-resistance; all beneficial properties that are passed on to your structural ceramic end-product.
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
  • Binderless spray-dried granulated powder
  • Highly loaded aqueous-based suspensions or slurries

Properties and benefits

Our 3YSZ powder is manufactured using our proprietary EDS technology, which ensures the powder is produced with the highest quality and consistency and enhanced chemical and physical properties.
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.

3YSZ from Innovnano exhibits the high component strength and durability required for the manufacture of structural ceramics.
Additionally, the use of hot isostatic pressing (HIP) as a final consolidation technique provides Innovnano 3YSZ powder with a unique robustness and outstanding mechanical properties that are desirable for physically demanding applications.
Structural ceramics are widely used across a broad range of industries, when a component or coating is required with exceptional wear- and friction-resistance. Some specific uses include:

  • Pump Linings
  • Valve Components
  • Nozzles
  • Tank Linings or Ceramic Sleeves
  • Cutting Tools
  • Grinding Material
  • Welding Pins
