Synthesis and Investigation of Al2O3/SiO2 /ZrO2 Powders via Selective Laser Sintering
This research focused on the synthesis and investigation of the thermal properties and microstructure of the Al2O3/SiO2 /ZrO2 system applied to dental field. The composite ceramic was studied by scanning electron microcopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Detailed investigations of the different proportions of materials on the preparation and microstructural phases of ternary eutectic were presented. Furthermore, the crystallization process was investigated by using DSC and XRD. The results indicate that sintering microstructure of the ternary eutectic composite is greatly influenced by the materials proportions. The synthetically thermal analysis shows that the eutectic temperature of ternary Al2O3/SiO2 /ZrO2 composite is 1040°C, is well matching the phase diagram of Al2O3/SiO2 /ZrO2.
