Frequently Asked Questions
Zirconium oxide is a monolithic material that maintains strength and hardness at high temperatures allowing it to resist wear, deformation, and corrosion.
Zirconium oxide is an oxide of zirconium, which is a chemical element, a gray-white metal. The zirconium is fused with other materials which alloys with the metal, creating the oxide.
Zirconium Oxide material characteristics will allow for excellent dimension control, superior surface finish, and lower scrap rates as compared to extrusion dies made from traditional materials. Extrusion manufacturers will benefit from reduced downtime, higher efficiencies, and increased yields.
