Based on our High-Performance Ceramic materials and our customers robust processes and demands, Kyocera has developed a new Zirconia material, which we call FZM+.
With this new material KYOCERA Fineceramics will be able to expand their market-share for new pump and valve applications with higher requirements as increased pressure and higher safety.
The new material FZM+ has outstanding properties like:
- Higher fracture toughness
- Better strength
- High hydrothermal resistance
- Low Young’s modulus
These increased properties together with the already known good corrosion resistance and high-quality surfaces make FZM+ to a fantastic material candidate for applications in harsh and challenging environment.
Kyocera Fineceramics sees an increased market e.g., in the markets Oil & Gas and Renewable Energies industry for products like Pressure Containment Shells for magnetic coupled pumps, Valve Components, High-Pressure Pistons, Sensor components and Flow Meters. The new material FZM+ offers safe and economic operations.
FZM+ has also high potential also for other applications like housings, shells, and tubes, which are exposed to high pressure differences or as linings for wire drawing and grinding equipment.
