Abstract

3Y-TZP containing Al2O3 platelet reinforcements were fabricated by suspension processing and pressureless sintering to >95% of theoretical density. The effect of platelet size on the green and fired microstructures was determined. There was improvement in mechanical properties using smaller platelets, but loss in fracture strength using larger platelets.
