Unique Properties of MSZ

MSZ exhibits several unique properties that make it stand out among other ceramic materials. It has superior resistance to thermal shock and erosion. Additionally, it has low thermal expansion properties and excellent non-wetting characteristics. These properties make MSZ a very tough ceramic used in severe-service applications.

  • Exceptional Strength: MSZ boasts remarkable strength, surpassing even that of steel in certain applications. This attribute makes it an ideal choice for components subjected to intense mechanical stress.
  • Exceptional Durability: MSZ exhibits exceptional resistance to wear and abrasion, far exceeding that of conventional ceramics. This property renders it a valuable asset for applications involving friction and particle erosion.
  • Exceptional Thermal Stability: MSZ maintains its structural integrity over a wide temperature range, from -40°C to 2200°C. This characteristic makes it suitable for high-temperature environments and thermal shock resistance.

Applications of Magnesium Stabilized Zirconia

MSZ is ideal for machinery parts and valves in severe applications. Its combination of corrosion resistance, durability, and toughness make it a preferred choice for these applications. MSZ coatings have low thermal conductivity and a high melting point, making them excellent high-temperature thermal barriers. They are resistant to particle erosion in high temperatures and resist wetting of molten zinc, iron, steel, copper, and aluminum.
