Near-Net Shaping of Microwave Ceramics by Gel-Casting with Carrageenan


Article Preview

Single carrageenan and combinations of carrageenan with other polysaccharides, including locust bean gum and konjak gum, are applied to form green bodies of microwave ceramics by gel-casting technique. Similar dielectric properties of the samples are achieved and compared with ceramics formed by dry pressing method.
