Introduction of Zirconia

Zirconia (ZrO2), the main oxide of the metal zirconium, is an essential high temperature resistant material, with high melting points, thermal expansion coefficients, strong corrosion resistance and excellent chemical stability. With the rapid progress of 3D printing technology, the applications of ZrO2 materials combined with 3D printing are more and more widespread, and the fields of ZrO2 materials are further expanded. As shown in Fig. 1, the monolithic tooth crown was 3D printed from ZrO2 materials.

CD BioSciences is a technology company that provides 3D printing services for global customers. It supplies high-quality ZrO2 materials, including their composites, and provides customized services for your specific needs at any time.

ZrO2 materials have high temperature resistance, electrical insulation, excellent mechanical properties, and can be applied to harsh and special environments, making them indispensable materials for mechanical processing. In dentistry, ZrO2 materials materials are favored because of their excellent biocompatibility and aesthetics. With the continuous improvement of aesthetics and performance requirements, 3D printing of ZrO2 materials has emerged as a solution. With 3D printing, ZrO2 ceramic products can be produced without mechanical processing or molds, and production efficiency and material utilization rates are high.

Through element doping, ZrO2 materials can be designed with different structures, machinery, and thermal properties. For example, adjusting the yttrium oxide doping amount of the yttrium stabilized ZrO2, will cause the change in the properties of ZrO2 ceramics. CD BioSciences offers certified ZrO2 materials and a variety of related composites, and can provide medical and non-medical series according to different application needs.
