Abstract: ZrB2-SiC and ZrB2-SiC-C ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) were fabricated by pressureless sintering under an argon atmosphere. The mass and linear ablation rates were tested in an oxyacetylene flame with high velocity. The microstructure and phase transformation of the ZrB2-based UHTCs were characterized by scanning electron microscopy along with energy dispersive spectrometry. Results show that the UHTCs have excellent properties of ablation resistance at ultra-high temperature. The values of mass and linear ablation rates were lower in the ZrB2-SiC UHTCs than those measured for ZrB2-SiC-C. The effect of C addition on the ablation resistant was not obvious but it influenced the microstructure of the ZrB2-SiC UHTCs. And the ablation resistant mechanisms of ZrB2-based UHTCs were discussed according to microstructure analysis.

Abstract: With AlN, Al2O3 and Al powders as starting materials, ALON powders were prepared by high temperature solid state reaction at 1650°C, 1750°C and 1850°C respectively. Nitrogen gas at 1atm was selected as reaction atmosphere. X-ray diffraction analysis and scanning electron microscope analysis were carried out for the as-prepared ALON powders. In this paper, single-component γ-ALON porous materials were obtained at temperatures below 1800 degree with void ratio more than 75%, which is prone to be grinded to powders less than 1μm and applicable for the preparation of transparent ceramics. Aluminum oxynitride spinel γ-ALON transparent ceramics were successfully obtained with the as-prepared ALON powders. The volume density of the transparent ceramics was 3.67g/cm2, which is 99.3 percent of the theoretical density of γ-ALON materials. The bending strength of the transparent ceramics was 296MPa and the transmittance was about 75% in the wavelength range of 1.2 to 5.3μm.

Abstract: ZrB2-SiC ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) were pressureless sintered with Y2O3-Al2O3 as the sintering additives. The effects of sintering additive and crystallization annealing on the microstructure and properties of ZrB2-SiC UHTCs were investigated. Sintering was activated by producing liquid phase of Y2O3 and Al2O3. The relative density of sintered ZrB2-20wt%SiC ceramic could reach 96% when the content of sintering additive was 6% and the sintering temperature was 1750°C and its bending strength, Vickers hardness, and fracture toughness were 412 MPa, 13 GPa, and 6.0 MPa•m1/2, respectively. The crystallization annealing can result in YAG phase from grain boundary and enhance the high temperature properties of the UHTCs. The UHTCs have excellent ablation resistance at ultra-high temperatures, and a very low ablation rate of 0.0006 mm/s after ablation for 900s at 2800°C.
