Description

Materic’s “Zirconia Nanofibers” are ultrafine fibers (<250 nm) composed of zirconium oxide (ZrO2), also known as Zirconia, which is a highly stable ceramic material characterized by its strong mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and stability at high temperatures. These nanofibers are electrospun from a composite solution of ceramic precursor and a compatible polymer solution of proper viscosity before being calcined at appropriate temperatures to form various crystallites of Zirconia (tetragonal, monoclinic, or biphasic).

Owing to their nanoscale size and high surface area-to-volume ratio, Zirconia nanofibers offer enhanced properties of increased strength, higher reactivity, and electrical conductivity. Their incorporation is known to improve performance of solid oxide fuel cells, increase mechanical properties of composites, act as flexible scaffolds for bone tissue regeneration and as supports for functional nanoparticles.
