Zirconium Dioxide (ZrO2)

Zirconia Balls

Precision Plastic Ball Company is a leading supplier of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) balls as well as steel, aluminum, and plastic precision balls. We offer a selection of high-quality zirconia balls in a range of sizes including 1/8" and over 1 inches in diameter for a variety of applications.

Zirconium Dioxide Features / Properties

Balls manufactured from zirconium dioxide are highly resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and stress from repetitive impacts. In fact, they will actually increase in toughness at the point of impact. Zirconia oxide balls also have incredibly high hardness, durability, and strength. High temperatures and corrosive chemicals are no issue for zirconia balls, and they will maintain their excellent properties up to 1800 degrees ºF.

This makes zirconia balls a great option for use in many high-impact and high-temperature environments. Their properties make them the most durable ball for grinding and milling applications. In addition, zirconium oxide ceramic balls are commonly used in flow control applications such as check valves, and they are also popular for use in the medical field due to their high strength and purity.
