Effect of Aluminum Addition on Synthesis of Ti3SiC2 by Vacuum Sintering
High purity Ti3SiC2 ceramic was synthesized by mechanical alloying and vacuum sintering. The effect of aluminum (Al) content on the properties and processing of Ti3SiC2 was investigated. The results showed that proper addition of a definite amount of Al could obviously increase the purity of Ti3SiC2, and was favorable for reducing the sintering temperature of Ti3SiC2.
