Summary

Aqueous ceramic suspensions are used to prepare ceramic components by pressure casting. The interparticle forces between the submicron particles, which can be attractive or repulsive, are necessary to get a stable and dispersed powder slurry [1–3]. The role of these forces on the pressure casting kinetics and resulting filter cake properties was analyzed. A correlation between the filter cake structure, as well as compact properties like compressibility, porosity, pore size distribution and permeability will be discussed on the basis of these experiments. Finally, the properties will be related to the structural permeability model of Carman and Kozeny.
