Chemicals - Pharmaceuticals > Paint production

The production of pigments often requires the grinding of the raw materials to obtain optimum colour effect. It is necessary to ensure that plant components and resources used, insofar as they are in direct contact with the product, do not lead to undesired contamination.

Grinding media made of ZrO2 ceramics, for example of the type Mg-PSZ, have proven effective for decades. They are typically characterized by the following properties:

  • Purity >99.5 %
  • Density >98 % of the theoretical value
  • No open porosity
  • High wear resistance
  • High fracture strength and toughness
  • Pronounced impact strength
  • High thermal and thermomechanical resistance
  • Reliably long service lifetime in operating conditions
