Zirconia Oxide when alloyed with Yttria or Magnesium becomes an extremely hard technical ceramic. These materials are best known as the toughest of ceramics against impact and with inherent fine grain size can be fabricated to allow very fine edges and features. High density and low thermal conductivity are consistent, but electrical properties can vary with high temperature.
