RAPAL 200 AZ
Combined in the best way: Zirconia-toughened alumina ZTA
Oxide-ceramic materials have become indispensable materials in machine engineering due to their outstanding wear-resistance, corrosion-resistance and dimensional stability.
Oxide ceramics include aluminium oxide, zirconium oxide, titanium oxide and zirconia-toughened alumina ZTA.
As a composite material, RAPAL 200 AZ combines the advantages of the materials aluminium oxide and zirconium oxide. It is used in situations where a very high breaking strength and impact strength are essential.
RAPAL 200 AZ is a composite material made out of aluminium oxide and zirconium oxide. The proportion of 15 weight-% ZrO2 causes a considerable increase in the stability and impact strength compared with pure Al2O3. An extremely high stability is thus achieved for ceramics, with an almost metal-like toughness.
