In recent years, the development of metal-ceramic composites with interpenetrating networks has found considerable interest due to their advantageous material properties. the idea of multifunctional metal-ceramic composites consequently arose from the combination of the 3A (alumina-aluminide alloys) and the LPIM (low-pressure injection molding) technology. Thereby, composites with locally controlled composition can be fabricated bye xtrusion of different m etal-ceramic paraffin wax suspension in solidfree forming. For example, structures of a electrical conducting network (∼ 10−3 Ωm) within an isolating matrix (> 106 Ωm) can be tailored as desired. Possible applications are structural parts with integrated heating or sensible functions, e.g. for indicating wear or crack propagation.
