Abstract

Capability of the recycling of high strength and high fracture toughness yttria-stabilized tetragonal zirconia polycrystalline (Y-TZP) sintered body utilizing “low-temperature annealing degradation” phenomenon was investigated. Hydrothermal treatment was employed to induce the phase transformation from tetragonal to monoclinic zirconia and to disintegrate the Y-TZP sintered body. 3 mol% Y2O3–ZrO2 specimens sintered at 1,550 °C and more were disintegrated without leaving the original appearances when the treatment temperature was between 200 °C and 400 °C. The size of the disintegrated fragments of Y-TZP sintered body was much affected by hydrothermal treatment conditions. Only with hydrothermal treatment and simple ball milling, the sintered body was pulverized into the primary particle level. This technique is expected to apply to a sustainable recycling system for the zirconia ceramics, which restrains an energy consumption compared to crushing zirconia using mechanical procedures.
