Increasing the development efficiency of ceramic materials

The development of high-performance ceramics is determined by a large number of influencing factors. In addition to material-specific aspects, such as the chemical purity of the initial raw materials, particle size reproducibility and uniformity of particle morphology, production-specific factors also determine the final properties of ceramics.

In this context it is the molding process that primarily influence the formation of the green body. However, the properties of the molded ceramic component are not only dependent on the consolidation technique itself, but also on the quality of the raw material mixture used and therefore on its conditioning. This means that for efficient material development it is necessary to find preparation techniques for laboratory-scale batch compositions that simulate the material characteristics of the end product as closely as possible and permit smooth transfer to the subsequent production process. Cost-intensive development processes requiring a lot of time are considerably shortened in this way. (...)
