Homogeneous Sol-coating on Sintering Properties of Fused Silica Powder
Abstract:A silica sol was firstly prepared via the hydrolysis of TEOS, and then the surface of fused silica particles was coated by a homogeneous sol layer. The coated particles were obtained after washing, drying and calcination treatment. The fused silica ceramic was prepared with the original and coated particles at different sintering temperatures. The sintering properties of the original and coated particles were investigated. The effect of sol-coating on the crystallization behavior and bending strength of the ceramic sintered samples was also analyzed. The results show that the property of the fused silica particles coated with homogeneous sol layer is superior to that of original particles. Compared to the sintered sample using original particles as a raw material, the sample with coated particles sintered shows a higher volume density, a greater bending strength and a lower apparent porosity rate. The crystallization behavior of the fused silica ceramic is not affected by the sol layer. The optimum performance of sample with the coated particles sintered (the volume density of 1.89 g/cm3, the bending strength of 30.2 MPa, and no crystallization phenomenon) can be achieved at a sintering temperature of 1 200 .
