The crack proceeds towards the less rigid zirconia grains, which tend to absorb the crack energy for the phase transformation. CrO retains hardness at high levels, while yttria-stabilized zirconia preserves the material resistance. , 2008). 4 Zirconia (ZrO2) Zirconia was introduced in the 1980s in joint replacement technology, due to its high flexural strength, which countered alumina’s low resistance to fracture. Zirconium oxide has a polycrystalline biphasic structure: tetragonal and monoclinic.
