Joining of zirconia using zirconium-based alloys

  • Nobuya Iwamoto

The contact angles of Zr-Ni, Zr-Cu and Zr-Co alloys against PSZ were measured by the sessile drop method. Each alloy wetted PSZ very well. Zr-Co alloys showed a different behaviour. Joints of PSZ plates were obtained using Zr-17Ni alloy. At the joint interface, internal oxidation of zirconium occurred. The fracture shear strength of this joint was 55 MPa.
