Paper Title:
Sintering, Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Ba2HoWO5.5 Ceramics
  Abstract

In high technology industries ceramics have several uses, especially at high temperature, e.g. inert crucibles, electrodes and catalysts. We are working on production and development of new oxide ceramics, based on complex cubic perovskite structure, for fabrication of crucibles for metallurgical applications. In the present work, we have produced and studied sintering behavior of a new ordered complex cubic perovskite oxide ceramic Ba2HoWO5.5. Microstructural characteristics of the Ba2HoWO5.5, sintered between 1200 to 1400°C for 48h, were studied by scanning electron microscopy. The mechanical behavior was studied by Vickers microhardness tests. Our studies show a gradual improvement in microstructural characteristics of sintered Ba2HoWO5.5, both on polished and fractured surface. This homogeneity of grain sizes and particle size distribution increases with the increasing of the sintering temperature, which results in higher sintered density and increased mechanical hardness.
