The sintered product may be finished using diamond wheels.

This processing may alter the biological, chemical, physical and mechanical properties of the Zirconia products.

A possible overheating of the surface of the prosthetic structure may lead to a transformation of the structure from tetragonal (high resistance) to monoclinic (low resistance value) and to a greater wear of the diamond wheels.

  • in case of small grinding operations on the sintered product, the temperature during grinding for all the ZYTTRIA elements must be lower than 70°C
  • cool the Zirconia structure with a jet of water during the grinding phase
