Controllable Forming Technology in Gelcasting
Controllable forming technology is one of the key problems for the industrial application of gelcasting. In order to solve this problem, various kinds of influence factors in gelcasting were investigated. Trace ions, ionic strength, pH, dispersant agent, premix, amount of initiator and catalyst, temperature, pressure, materials of container and inhibitor all have influence on solidification process of ceramic slurry. The forming process of gelcasting can be controlled effectively by adjusting these factors.
