Y-FZM 1400 Powder


Y-FZM 1400 is a dry powder mixture of Yttria and FZM (Fused Zirconia-Mullite) which, on adding around 40 wt% water and stirring forms a cementitious slurry that can be poured or cast into silicone molds to form parts. Y-FZM 1400 also can be used to cement/glue refractories together (such as Alumina). Cast parts can be removed from the mold after vibrating to remove air bubbles and then heating at 50-60 C to “set” the binder and allow removal from the silicone mold. Heating a cast part to 1375-1400 C results in nearly 100% dense refractory transormed to highly stable Yttria phases (Yttrium Aluminate, YSZ, Yttrium Silicate). Y-FZM 1400 is ideal for making your own corrosion resistant refractory parts, reportedly stable with molten Aluminum, glasses, and steel. Usable to nearly 1400 C in all atmospheres.

Key Attributes
  • Prepared as a slurry from dry mixture by just adding water
  • Readily prepared into near full density parts by cast-and-sinter technique
  • Useful as a cement/glue or repair putty for other refractories
  • Nearly 1400 C use temperature
  • Forms Yttria compounds on sintering
  • Contains no RCF (Refractory Ceramic Fiber)
  • Water-based – easy cleanup
Ideal Use
  • Casting your own specialty parts of high-stability, high-performance Yttria-based refractory
  • Repairing/patching of fissures, cracks, joints
  • Cementing refractory ceramic parts
