Storage Stability of Ceramic Slurries for Gelcasting


Article Preview

In the industrialization of gelcasting, storage of ceramic slurry has been one of the key problems that must be solved. Except for sedimentation of ceramics particle, solidification properties of slurries were also affected after long-term storage. In this article, some factors in the process of slurry were discussed, and corresponding solution methods were put forward.
