Fabrication of Pressureless Sintered β-Sialon-ZrO2 Composites


Article Preview

β-sialon-ZrO2 composites with Si5AlON7 or Si4Al2O2N6 bonding phase were prapared in N2 atmosphere at 1550°C with Si, Al2O3, AlN and ZrO2 (Ca) as raw materials by reaction in situ pressureless sintering. Effect of Z value and content of β-sialon batch on its sintering performance, phase composition, microstructure, and thermal expansion character were investigated. Results showed that the phase of Si5AlON7 was formed in samples with β-sialon designing Z=1, and phases of Si5AlON7 and Si4Al2O2N6 were formed in samples with β-sialon designed Z=2 and β-sialon designed Z=3, respectively and Bending strength of samples increase with content of β-sialon batch. When content of β-sialon batch equals 10wt%, 15wt% and 15% respectively, the samples with β-sialon designed Z=1, Z=2, and Z=3 have lower apparent porosity, microstructure of homogeneous and compact and lower thermal expansion coefficient, respectively.
