Features for 0.1 mm Yttria Stabilized Zirconia Micro Milling Media, Microbeads 

  • High purity: made of high grade yttria stabilized zirconia precursors in the nano-meter range, which is also chemically co-precipitated.  
  • High density media ideal for high energy mills, maximizing throughput and productivity. 
  • High fracture toughness and high wear resistance minimize the contamination of beads during high speed milling. 
  • 15% superior to Ceria Stabilized Zirconia medias in wear rate through many tests. 

Typical beads size range: 0.09 - 0.13 mm (average size 0.11 mm)
