Yttrium oxide nanopowder
Original technology of yttrium oxide nanopowder production is protected by RF patent.
Average grain size is 20-40 nm.
Particle shape – spherical.
Range of application:
- Structural ceramics having high resistance in corrosive medium, high strength and wear resistance (engines, buckets, turbines, wear-resistant parts, etc.)
- Solid electrolytes in solid oxide fuel cells (ZrO2:Y2O3). Application of nanopowders provides increasing of ionic conduction, strength and crack growth resistance. Such fuel cells are not corroded, and are extremely suitable for natural gas combustion in stationary units.
- Production of superalloys and low alloys based on chromium (increasing of material creep resistance).
- Production of fluorescent materials used as components of light-transforming compositions.
The Institute sells production technology and batches of yttrium oxide nanopowders.
