Summary

Mullite and mullitelzirconia composite fibers were produced by sol-gel processing. Fibers were characterized by thermal gravimetric analysis, nitrogen gas adsorption, X-ray diffraction, and electron microscopy. Fibers with high relative density (low porosity) and fine grain size could be produced after heat treatment in the range 1200°-1500°C.
