Paper Title:
Two-Steps Sintering of Alumina-Zirconia Ceramics
  Abstract

Sintering in two-steps has been applied with success for densification of nanometric ceramic powders without grain growth. Another mechanism that alters the sintering process is the presence of rigid inclusions in the ceramic. In this work it was studied the effect of two-steps sintering and the presence of zirconia inclusions (5% in volume) in the microstructure of a commercial alumina. For this, the powders of alumina and zirconia were desaglomerated in a ball milling and uniaxially pressed at 80 MPa to form cylindrical compacts and isostatically cold pressed at 200 MPa. Temperatures of the steps were chosen starting from the curves of linear rate shrinkage in function of the temperature. The samples were characterized for apparent density, scanning electronic microscopic and mean grain size. The results showed that two-steps sintering and the zirconia inclusions were efficient to control the densification and grain size of alumina.
