Zr-Nanoxide ZR/SP is a zirconium dioxide paste that forms a porous and electrically insulating layer after firing at 475°C. It is intended to act as an insulating and reflective spacer layer on a pre-existing nanostructured TiO2 electrode in monolithic assemblies.
The resulting zirconium dioxide layers are opaque white and exhibit minimal dye uptake. Titania staining can be realized in the presence of a zirconia layer, thanks to its porous structure which allows the dye solution to penetrate.
Zr-Nanoxide ZR/SP is suitable for screen-printing or slot-coating (doctor-blade). When using screen-printing, we recommend a 61-64 mesh (61 threads/cm, 64 µm thread diameter) stencil.
