General description

Zirconium(IV) oxide (ZrO2) which is also known as zirconia is a ceramic nanoparticle that can be used as a nano-filler. It can be incorporated in a variety of polymer and metal composites to improve the thermo-mechanical properties of the base material.

Application

ZrO2 can be used as a filler material on PMMA which can further be used as a high strength denture base material. It can also be used as a composite based metallic coating that can improve the overall mechanical properties of the substrate.

Ni-P-nano-ZrO(2) coatings were produced using the electroless deposition technique. To prevent agglomeration of zirconia nanoparticles in the plating bath, various surfactant additives (anionic, cationic, and nonionic) were used. The most stable bath was obtained with the addition of dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide
