Zirconia Substrate Ceramics
Final Advanced Materials supplies a wide variety of substrates: alumina, zirconia, and aluminium nitride. All our substrates are produced by laser cutting. It is possible to order plates in standard dimensions, or for parts to be cut to a customized design, whether for a prototype or for series production.
Final Advanced Materials has machining facilities which guarantee ISO 9001-certified quality. Our tooling and our expertise permit the production of the most complex components from your plans.
ZYTC substrates are thin, rigid, tape cast structures composed of zirconia stabilized with yttria at targeted stabilization concentrations. ZYTC is our thinnest zirconia material and is ideally suited as a setter for sintering microelectronics, solid oxide fuel cells and thermal management applications under conditions of high temperatures and in varied atmospheres. ZYTC has been high fired and is tightly bonded resulting in a dust free, smooth gas tight surface. ZYTC is dimensionally stable to 1,500 °C. It has exceptional resistance to oxidizing and reducing atmospheres at high temperatures. Zirconia does, however, lose a small amount of oxygen at very high temperatures in vacuum and inert or reducing atmospheres. Although this reaction results in a colour change from white to grey, other properties remain essentially unchanged.
