Summary

In the preparation of ZrO2 products a method of low-temperature stabilization was developed. After solving a series of problems the optimal temperature range was found. The powder material produced was stabilized and basically of crystalline state, but its hardness was much lower than before. Then by proper sintering, ZrO2 products resistant to fracture were produced. They have high-temperature resistance and stable chemical properties. The processing period was reduced by seven times and the cost was largely lowered. A method to improve the poor thermal-shock resistivity property is briefly described.
