Zirconia (YSZ) Tube Description

Zirconia (ZrO2) is an extremely refractory material. They possess excellent chemical inertness and corrosion resistance at temperatures up to 2200℃, well above the melting point of alumina. Zirconia is stabilized in the cubic crystal structure to avoid cracking and mechanical weakening during heating and cooling. In addition to their refractoriness, they offer low thermal conductivity and are electrical conductors above 800 ℃. They also possess the unique ability to allow oxygen ions to move freely through the crystal structure above 600 ℃.

The YSZ tube is very brittle and must be handled very carefully.  When used as a processing tube, the heating and cooling rates should be as slow as possible (usually <5°C/minute above 800°C and < 2°C/minute above 1500°C).
