The tetragonal to monoclinic transformation (tm) is associated with a substantial volume increase (~4.
The tested hypotheses are that: (1) the grinding of zirconia with larger grit-size devices leads to a decrease in flexural strength and to an increase in monoclinic content and in surface roughness; and (2) heat treatment restores the original characteristics of the material.
The important point in this process is the production of tetragonal and cubic zirconia nanoparticles from the initial monoclinic powder.
It then succeeded in developing a new type of zirconia that has both higher flexural strength and fracture toughness and, when exposed to hydrothermal condition, its crystal structure does not change to a monoclinic phase, a common cause of compromised strength.
The XRD and FT-IR indicate the existence of kaolinite poorly ordered, monoclinic, mixed with others mineral, such as halloysite, dickite, nacrite, quartz, illite, feldspars.
It consists of cubic zirconia as the major phase and monoclinic and tetragonal zirconia precip- itates as the minor phase.
The findings revealed that the ceramic can suffer a slow, tetragonal to monoclinic phase transformation at the samples surface in a humid atmosphere, followed by microcracking and a major loss in strength known as low temperature degradation (LTD) [6-10].
