LithaLox HP500 and LithaLox 350 are ceramic slurries based on high-purity aluminum oxide (99.99% and 99.8%, respectively) . Alumnia is one of the most important oxide ceramic materials and is characterized by high hardness, corrosion and temperature resistance.
LithaCon 3Y 210 and LithaCon 3Y 230 are ceramic slips based on 3 mol% Y 2 O 3 stabilized zirconium oxide. Zirconia is used for applications that place extreme demands on the material. Valves, bearings, cutting tools and components for high-performance forming technology are just a few of the applications that benefit from the mechanical properties of Zirconia.
LithaNit 720 is a slip based on beta-SiAlON ceramics. This is characterized by outstanding material properties such as high strength, toughness, thermal shock resistance and chemical resistance to corrosion of acids and bases.
LithaBone TCP 300 is based on the ceramic beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP). Tricalcium phosphate (TCP) has established itself as a bone substitute material in regenerative medicine due to its excellent biocompatibility, bioresorbability and osteoconductivity.
LithaBone HA 400 , based on hydroxyapatite, is a naturally occurring mineral that forms the main component of the bones. Because of its similarity to the inorganic components of the bone, HA has excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity and has a number of uses as a bone replacement.
LithaCore 450 consists mainly of silica with admixtures of aluminum oxide and zircon. It is used to manufacture casting cores for investment casting. A typical application is the single crystal casting of turbine blades.
