BIOLOX® delta is a zirconia-toughened, platelet-reinforced alumina ceramic, designed to incorporate the wear properties and stability of alumina with improved material strength and toughness and a distinctive color. BIOLOX delta material contains 82% of alumina, 17% tetragonal zirconia particles, 0.5% strontium aluminate and 0.5% chromium oxide. All values are approximate values by volume compositions.
