Fabrication of the Composite Ceramic Material ACS
Based on the theory of thermodynamics, the chemical compatibility of the possible composition system of ceramic material Al2O3/Cr3C2/SiC (for short ACS) was analyzed. The results show that no chemical reaction could take place under 1800°C through Cr3C2, SiC and Al2O3. And it was tested by the fabrication of the Al2O3/Cr3C2/SiC composite with the hot pressing sintering technique. The flexural strength and fracture toughness of ACS are super than the Al2O3 ceramic.
