Summary

Alumina was liquid phase sintered with two different compositions of the liquid phase. It was found that a ZrO2-containing liquid phase leads to an increased grain growth, what can be put down to an increased solid-liquid interface energy. To prevent grain boundary infiltration in melt corrosion, a high solid-liquid interface energy is desired. The effect of ZrO2 is supposed to be another aspect of the corrosion mechanism of Zirconia containing refractories, for example in application in glass melt furnaces.
