Zirconium Oxide (Zirconia)(ZrO₂)
Reade offers two grades.
DURAZON MCG is a dense, granular, electric arc fused monoclinic zirconia grain. The electric arc fused zirconia is poured from a state-of-the-art tilt furnace that ensures product uniformity. This zirconia is thermally stable to very high temperatures (2500ºC), has low thermal conductivity, and is chemically inert.
DURAZON CSG is a dense, granular, electric arc fused stabilized zirconia. Durazon CSG stabilized zirconia is a blend of zirconium oxide and approximately 4% calcium oxide. This produces a product with about 75% cubic zirconia plus 25% monoclinic zirconia. The electric arc fused zirconia is poured from a state-of-the-art tilt furnace that ensures product uniformity. This highly stabilized calcia-stabilized zirconia is thermally stable to very high temperatures (2500ºC) and chemically inert in oxidizing and reducing atmospheres.
Zirconia is used in ceramics, including the manufacturing of ceramic knives. It has refractory purposes and is used for thermal barrier coatings. It is used in dental bridges and crowns, joint implants, as an additive in paints and lacquers, and as a scratch-resistant and abrasive material.

Zirconium Oxide is considered sustainable due to its high durability, high-temperature resistance, and excellent corrosion resistance properties. This material is used in various applications, including coatings, cutting tools, and refractory materials. It also contributes to a circular economy because it can be recycled and used in the production of new products, reducing waste and promoting a more sustainable manufacturing process.
