A combination of positive oxide ceramics properties (ZrO2 / Al2O3) to provide enhanced material properties (ZTA / ATZ).
Mixed ceramics are materials that consist of a combination of zirconium oxide and aluminum oxide to produce advanced materials combining the high strength and impact resistance of zirconia with the hardness of alumina. In contrast to ATZ ceramics, the percentage share of alumina in ZTA ceramics is higher than that of zirconia.
