CERAMIC BALLS

CERAMIC BALLS

SILICON NITRIDE (Si3N4)

It is the most used ceramic material because has a high resistance to corrosion, working efficiently until a temperature up to +1400ºC. It presents extreme hardness and can be manufactured in high precision. It has a weight 60% lower than steel. This material does not require lubrication. It is used mainly in the aerospace industry.

ALUMINA OXIDE (Al2O3 99,5%)

It presents a bigger resistance to temperature that the silicon nitride, as well as a high resistance to corrosion, resisting most of the corrosive agents except hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acid.

ZIRCONIA OXIDE (ZrO2)

Material with a very low electric conductivity, presents high flexibility. Small sizes (between 0,2 - 3,3 mm) are used for pigments production due to its high resistance to wear.

RUBY (Al2O3 99,99%)

Material with high hardness and excellent resistance to the wear.
