August Product Highlights


DKA produces zirconium compounds that contribute to making a variety of important products across numerous industries.

Zirconia plays a crucial role in reducing harmful emissions from cars. As an automotive catalyst component, zirconia helps convert toxic pollutants into less harmful substances, contributing to a cleaner and greener environment. Thanks to zirconia our air quality is better.

Zirconia is not only used in automotive catalytic converters but also in various industrial processes. It supports catalytic reactions, speeding them up, and enabling the production of essential materials.

The hidden power of zirconia can be discovered in industrial applications.

Looking for durable, and heat-resistant materials? Look no further! Zirconia-based fine ceramics offer stunning aesthetics and exceptional mechanical properties, making them perfect for cutting tools and high-performance industrial components. It’s easy to see the beauty of zirconia in its ceramic applications.

Zirconia is also a smile-enhancing material. Dental crowns and implants made from zirconia provide strong, and natural-looking solutions for tooth restoration. With its biocompatibility and superior strength, zirconia is revolutionizing modern dentistry. Zirconia helps you flash your perfect smile!

Ever wonder how electronic devices become smaller and more powerful? Zirconia is one of the key materials behind this technological marvel. It is used in production and as a component ingredient enabling miniaturization, and enhancing device performance. Zirconia is key in allowing us to experience the power of electronics.

Looking for cleaner and more efficient energy solutions?

Zirconia-based fuel cells offer a promising alternative. By converting chemical energy into electricity, these fuel cells produce minimal emissions and help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Zirconia is helping us step into the future of sustainable energy.

DKA produces cesium compounds that contribute to making aluminum brazing materials. Cesium-based flux can be integrated into brazing materials that are widely used in joining aluminum parts. Cesium flux brazing materials ensure strong and reliable connections, enhancing the performance and durability of various aluminum products.

Zirconia is a critical component in high-performance brake systems. Its exceptional heat resistance and friction properties make it ideal for brake pads, ensuring reliable stopping power and extended durability. Zirconia helps us stay safe on the road.

Final Fun Facts :

Zirconia is not only found on Earth but also in outer space! Astronomers have discovered zirconia crystals in meteorites, giving us a fascinating glimpse into the composition of distant celestial bodies.

Zirconia loves extremes. It can withstand incredibly high temperatures and can even survive the scorching heat of molten steel. This exceptional heat resistance makes zirconia an indispensable material in demanding industries, from lithium-ion batteries to steel manufacturing.

Zirconia is powerful and multipurpose, making its mark across industries and in numerous practical applications. It truly is a super material!
