Zirconium Dioxide Coating Benefits
  • Resist particle erosion at high temperatures above 1550F
  • Good Abrasion Resistance
Applications and Uses of Zirconium Dioxide Coatings

Zirconium Dioxide coatings primary use is for thermal barrier applications. It's high service temperatures have made it a good candidate for rocket engine thrust chambers and jet engine components.

It does exhibit good abrasion resistance but other coatings such as Aluminum Oxide offer better performance for abrasion depending on the applications operating temperatures.
