Dolomite-type borate ceramics consisting of CaZrB2O6
were synthesized via a conventional solid-state reaction route;
low-temperature sintering was explored using Bi2O3–CuO
additives of 1–7 wt% for low-temperature co-fired ceramics
applications. For several sintering temperatures, the microwave
dielectric properties and chemical resistance of the ceramics were
investigated. The CaZrB2O6
ceramics with 3 wt% Bi2O3–CuO
addition could be sintered below 925°C, and the microwave dielectric
properties of the low-temperature samples were ɛr=10.55,
Q×f=87,350 GHz, and τf=+2 ppm/°C.
The chemical resistance test result showed that both CaZrB2O6–
CaZrB2O6 ceramics were
durable in basic solution but were degraded in acid solution.
