Summary

In the present study we investigated the sintering behaviour of ceramic-glass composites, containing alumina and borosilicate glass (25 vol%), in the temperature range 900-1450 °C with time ranging from 0 to 360 min. The sintering of the alumina and glass powder compacts was investigated through density measurements, and the microstructure was analysed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
