Morgan Advanced Materials Offers Nilcra Mg-PSZ for Demanding Applications

Morgan Advanced Materials (MTC) announces its Magnesia partially-stabilized Zirconia, Nilcra PSZ, an advanced ceramic material for a wide variety of demanding industrial environments, including materials handling, oil and gas, chemical, metal forming, and pulp and paper.

Components made from Nilcra PSZ typically outlast similar parts made from more traditional materials by 3-10 times, and feature very high mechanical strength and fracture toughness combined with excellent wear, abrasion, corrosion and thermal shock resistance.

MTC has been a world leader in the production of the strongest, toughest and most consistent Magnesia partially-stabilized Zirconia for over two decades. MTC's Nilcra PSZ is a ceramic alloy of high purity zirconium and magnesium oxides with a carefully controlled, unique microstructure. This unique microstructure results in a material toughening mechanism called "Transformation Toughening," creating a combination of exceptional material properties. Nilcra PSZ was originally touted as the "ceramic steel," as it has comparable thermal expansion to that of steel. This attribute enables it to often be used as a direct replacement for hardened steel/metal alloy components.

MTC's Melbourne, Australia operation specializes in the manufacture of customized components manufactured from Nilcra PSZ. Zirconia ceramic solutions include applications and design input, prototyping and production capabilities to meet both low and high volume requirements.

MTC Melbourne has the capability to manufacture Nilcra PSZ components up to 20" (500mm) in diameter and 24" (600mm) in length with cross sections up to 4" (100mm).

The company can machine to micron tolerances and super surface finishes, and boasts ISO 9002 accreditation.

Nilcra PSZ is available in two grades: Nilcra MS Grade PSZ for the majority of applications where maximum strength is required, and Nilcra TS Grade PSZ for environments where higher thermal shock resistance is necessary.
