Paper Title:
Consolidation of h-BN/Feldspar Composites in Air
  Abstract

Attempts have been made to sinter hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) by pressureless-sintering in air. In order to achieve this purpose, feldspar has been selected as a sintering aid to produce sintered compacts at a temperature above the melting point of feldspar. Even though h-BN was not wetted by the molten feldspar in nitrogen, the wettability was significantly improved in air. Through the heating process, the h-BN powder disappeared owing to the oxidation of the powder followed by sublimation of the boron oxide. The decomposition of BN was prevented effectively by the presence of molten feldspar in the h-BN/feldspar (30 vol.%) compact. It was shown that h-BN/feldspar composite can be sintered in air under normal pressure, although the bulk density of h-BN/feldspar composites (1.40 to 1.51 g/cm3) was not satisfactory enough.
