Z Aerosol

Z Aerosol is a fast-drying, solvent-based, easy-to-use 13 oz. aerosol spray can that allows easy application of Calcia (4%)-Stabilized Zirconium Oxide to most any substrate for use in any atmosphere. Thus, the aerosol-can provides the great properties of ZrO2 in an easy-to-use manner with:

  • moderately-low electrical conductivity
  • very-low thermal conductivity
  • good high-temperature stability with molten metals, glasses, slags, and salts; inert barrier for reactions
