Summary

Transformation of structural ceramics from the laboratory to production requires development of near net shape fabrication techniques which minimize finish grinding. One potential technique for producing large quantities of complex-shaped parts at a tance, and microstructure of sintered silicon nitride fabricated by injection molding is discussed and compared to data generated from isostatically dry-pressed material binder selection methodology, compounding of ceramic and binder components, injection molding techniques, and problems in binder removal. Strength, oxidation resistance, and microstructure of sintered silicon nitride fabricated by injection molding will be discussed and compared to data generated from isostatically dry-pressed material.
