Zircar Zirconia Blanks Type BYZ are high purity, bisque fired zirconia machining blanks.
The powders pressed to form these blanks are of a uniform size and well dispersed, ensuring no agglomerates. The resultant fine grained, bisque body allows intricate shapes to be
machined with tight tolerances.

BYZ blanks are phase stabilized with 3 mol% yttria and therefore do not undergo the usual
phase transitions associated with pure zirconia. This phase stabilization “toughens” the
zirconia and stops crack propagation, yielding high fracture toughness and high strength.

The highest purity powders are used to make Type BYZ, thereby minimizing trace oxides. Type BYZ is 99.9 wt% ZrO2 + Y2O3 + HfO2 + Al2O3. The natural zirconia minerals contain hafnia, HfO2, which is so similar in structure and chemical properties to zirconia, that it has no effect on product properties.  The small addition of alumina minimizes hydro-thermal aging.
