NYACOL® offers colloidal zirconium oxide as pure zirconia and as a mixture with yttria as 4 and 6 mol%. The particle size ranges from 10 nm for zirconia acetate and Zr10/15, up to 100 nm for Zr100/20. A negative charged alkaline sol is also available as Zr10/20NH4.
For use as a binder in ceramic and catalyst applications and an anti-scuff agent on glass. It also provides a high index of refraction for coatings and excellent transparency as a result of the small particle size.
