Microwave Sintering Of Zirconia And Alumina

A.V. Sujith, N. Amar Kumar, N. Sharan

Full text: PDF


It was a concern at the beginning of this study that there was a fundamental problem with achieving full density, and maintaining fine grain microstructures with microwave sintering. This has proved not to be the case. The high density and fine grain size of the microwave sintered alumina and zirconia samples makes them at least as hard as conventionally sintered materials. Microwave sintering is an energy and time efficient method for firing advanced ceramics for wear parts.
