Effects of Preheat-Treated Aluminosilicate Addition on the Phase Development, Microstructure, and Mechanical Properties of Mullitized Porous OBSC Ceramics

By / January 28, 2010

Datum Shifeng Liu, Yu-Ping Zeng, Dongliang Jiang, Shifeng LiuPublished Online: Oct 29 2008 1:03PM DOI: 10.1111/j.1744-7402.2008.02300.x ABSTRACT Mullitized porous oxidation-bonded SiC (OBSC) ceramics were fabricated with and without preheat-treated aluminosilicate by an in situ reaction-bonding process. The effects of the preheat-treated aluminosilicate on the phase development, microstructure, and mechanical properties of porous SiC ceramics were…
