Summary

Agglomeration of fine ceramic powders and whiskers is a recognized problem in ceramic processing. Techniques are required which provide dispersion, deagglomeration, and homogenization of composite raw matrials without damaging the whiskers or causing significant contamination. The results of using turbomilling as a means of dispersing, deagglomerating, and homogenizing Sic whisker/alumina composites will be discussed.
