zirconia grinding beads are used in a variety of applications. They can be used for fine grinding and dispersing of a wide range of chemicals, pigments, coatings, and more. They can also be used for polishing and finishing.
Choosing the Right Type of Grinding Media for Your Machine: This is an important consideration in your selection process. There are different types of machines and each one has specific purposes and needs for its media. You need to understand the different types and shapes of grinding media that work best for each machine.
Ceramic Grinding Beads: Ceria Stabilized Y-TZP Beads (6.2g/cm3)
The density of ceria stabilized zirconia beads is the highest among all other ceramic grinding media, which makes them ideal for high viscosity products that other media may float in. Moreover, they have larger touch areas and narrower space between them, which leads to greater grinding efficiency.
Super “XR” Beads: Zirbeads – “XR” series of zirconia grinding beads are designed specifically for today’s modern horizontal mills. They offer narrow size distributions and high shear, which is especially beneficial for pre-mixes for automotive and magnetic coatings that must be dissolved or ground up to 50,000 cps.
General-purpose zirconia and silica grinding beads are available in a wide range of sizes, from 0.2mm to 5.0mm. zirconia grinding beads can be used for a wide range of milling and dispersing applications, including inks, dyes, paints and pigments, iron and chrome-based magnetic materials, electronic-grade ceramics and laboratory milling operations. They are also available in RNase/DNase-free treated molecular biology-grade beads, which have been chemically and acid washed to remove any impurities that may contaminate the samples being processed.
