Paper Title:
Effect of Aluminium Sol on Microstructure and Properties of Corundum-Mullite Ceramic
  Abstract

The effect of aluminium sol on the properties and microstructure of corundum-mullite ceramics was investigated. The sample with 1.5 wt% aluminium sol possessed higher room-temperature and high-temperature strengths, while the sample with 3 wt% aluminium sol had higher bulk density, lower apparent porosity and better thermal shock resistance. Aluminium sol not only acts as a binder instead of some polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), but also reacts with silica to form mullite, which improves the properties and microstructure of the ceramics by increasing corundum and mullite phases.
