Functional Ceramics Application
The main application of zirconia in functional ceramics market is appears as oxygen sensor. Zirconia is a kind of solid-state electrolyte. At high temperature its oxygen ions are prone to migrate，meanwhile feedback signals are generated upon the ion transfer. This advantage find its wide applications in the automotive field. Based on the feedback signals from the oxygen sensor, automobiles can control the amount of fuel injection to minimize the emission of harmful gases. With the social stronger awareness of environmental protection gradually increased, the demand for environmental protection products will continues to grow.
