The orientation and grain boundary microstructure of alumina in reactive metal penetration Al/Al2O3 composites are studied using orientation imaging microscopy and the results are compared with those of sintered polycrystalline Al2O3. The interconnected Al2O3 in the composite material is separated by Σ3 boundaries (twins) with a 60° rotation around the [0001] direction. A high frequency (∼100%) of Σ3 coincidence boundaries in composite alumina is remarkable since only ∼12% of boundaries in a sintered polycrystalline Al2O3 are of special nature. The coincidence boundaries in the in situ alumina grow in a coherent and faceted manner.
