- slip casting;
- material strengths;
- colloidal suspension
Transformation-toughened alumina was fabricated by slip casting and subsequent sintering. Proper controls allowed the fabrication of large pieces which warped little during firing. High strengths were achieved but several parameters could be improved to achieve even higher strengths.
