gaging of manufactured products
ZIRCONIA'S WINNING ATTRIBUTES:
||Thermal expansion coefficient
close to steel |
||Electrical insulator |
||Resists corrosion |
||Smooth, low friction surfaces |
||Long term dimensional
||Hard, wear resistant surface |
||Strong and tough, resists
applications require the use of gaging products other than the commonly
found steels and tungsten carbide. Zirconium oxide often fits the
bill. The high expansion coefficient approximating many steels makes
it useful when gaging steel products; it can be used over a wider
temperature range before resulting in an out of tolerance condition.
Long life is assured by the high hardness and mechanical toughness of ZrO2.
The non-galling nature and high polish achievable on both YTZP and Mg TTZ
make them desirable candidates especially when gauging soft metals.
They can be easily cleaned when necessary with chemical cleaners to
preserve their gaging accuracy. The low friction coefficient against
most materials assures a good "feel" when hand gaging products.
