Zirconia Mortar and Pestle

Zirconia's high density, low porosity, inertness, toughness and super hardness make it the perfect material for making mortars and pestles.

Being approximately 10 on the Mohs hardness scale, zirconia mortar and pestles is able to grind materials too hard for agate, alumnia, and porcelain. Our high wear-resistant mortar and pestle effectively eliminates product contamination and is chemically inert to all acids.

These special features make zirconia the most versatile and best suited mortar and pestle material for sensitive biological and other critical applications requiring ultra-low contamination and acid resistence.

Grinding Applications

1. Hard Materials

Zirconia's superior hardness allows it to grind tough ceramics such as aluminum oxide and silicon oxide

2. Low Contamination Materials

When absolutely no contamination is tolerable, such as in ultra-pure organic, nanomaterial, and forensic applications, Zirconia is your best choice

3. HF Applications

Zirconia's inertness to HF and other acids make it superior to Agate and other materials

4. High Temperature Applications

Zirconia's physical and thermal shock resistence lend it well to high temperature applications

Agate Mortar and Pestle

For ordinary laboratory and educational needs, Agate mortar and pestle is an adaquate and economical choice. Its relatively hardness and low porosity compared to porcelain make it suitable for general organic and inorganic chemistry.

Our mortars and pestles are made from especially hard and dense agate, and their grinding surfaces are polished to reduce contamination. Because of their natural origins, our Agate mortars and pestles may vary slightly in apparance from the picture.
