Summary

In this study, a new approach is proposed in which the advantageous features of the spray forming process are exploited in order to produce ceramic materials. Molten reactive metal alloys together with coreactant particle injection in an oxygen-rich atmosphere are sprayed and react in-situ to a ceramic material. In a first approach, Al-Mg alloys are used together with particle injection of MgO, which yields a ceramic compound with a high amount of spinel (MgAl2O4) as the dominating reaction product.
