Aqueous Processing of Boron Carbide Powders
The present study was performed to determine the suitable processing conditions to obtain boron carbide slurries for gelcasting. We examined how dispersant, pH and other factors function in boron carbide slurries. The optimum conditions for the preparation of stable slurries with high solid content were determined. The effect of monomers on the slurry properties was studied. The properties of gelcasted green and sintered B4C samples were also investigated.
