Cold Isostatic Pressing of Tosoh Zirconia Powders
CRYSTAL brand zirconia is manufactured in the United States based on zirconia from TOSOH, who is the world's leader in dental zircocnia compounds. TOSOH Zirconia provides more than 90% of all zirconia powder used by dental milling block manufacturers. CRYSTAL Zirconia utilizes the highest grade yttrium stabilized zirconia powders that TOSOH manufacturers.

For large blocks, a special bonding agent is added to the zirconia powder to achieve the most uniform material distribution possible. CRYSTAL blocks are pressed using an advanced Cold Isostatic Pressing technology where the block is formed under pressure from all sides in a special high-tech semi-rigid mold. Isostatic pressingassures that the resulting block is of a single uniform density. After forming, the blocks are pre-sintered and additional density measurements are taken and printed on the package and/or bar-coded on the material.
