Article Preview

Aluminum titanate (Al2TiO5) is an engineering ceramic with low thermal expansion coefficient, excellent thermal shock resistance, good refractoriness and non-wetting with most metals. In this work the use of colloidal silica and nano boehmite mixture in proper stoichiometry of mullite in aluminum-titanate (tialite) has been studied. Analytical structural evaluations including XRD, TEM and SEM have been used to characterize the influence of these additives on phase transformation, sintering process and microstructure. The results show that the presence of nano size silica and boehmite enhanced the densification leads to fine microstructure, mullite phase formation and improve the tialite ceramics properties.
