Zirconia is ideal for applications with extreme demands on the material. Biocompatibility and aesthetics further define the applications of LithaCon.
LithaCon 3Y 210 contains zirconia stabilized with 3 mol% yttria. Mechanical highlights include excellent flexural strength (>1000MPa), fracture toughness, abrasion resistance and thermal shock resistance. These properties, combined with chemical resistance even at high temperatures, make LithaCon 3Y 210 the perfect material for structural elements.
Valves, bearings, cutting tools and components for high-performance shaping are just some of the applications that benefit from zirconia's superior mechanical properties. Biocompatibility and aesthetics also make it an essential material in medical and dental applications.
