Effect of Particle Size Distribution and Sedimentation Behaviour on Electrophoretic Deposition of Ceramic Suspensions
By systematic interaction of sedimentation and electrical field in electrophoretic deposition the particle size distribution of the deposited green body can be influenced. This can be employed for producing coatings with a very smooth surface by deposition of only the nanosized fraction of a conventional powder with broad or non-monomodal size distribution, thus avoiding preceding classification. In this paper, the preparation of stabilised slurries is described focussing on the criteria particle size distribution, zeta-potential and sedimentation behaviour. The effectiveness of the interaction of sedimentation and electrophoretic deposition is to be shown.
