Polymeric additivess have a great influence on the processing parameters in the produciton of high-performance ceramics. The various types of additives are described and the interactions between the organic additives and the inorganic ceramic powders, some examples of which are shown in the figure, are examined with emphasis on one of the most important ceramic forming processes.
