Fabrication of $Al_2O_3/SiC$ Composite Through Oxidation of SiC
The surface of SiC particles were partially oxidized to produce SiO2 layers on the SiC particles to prepare Al2O3/SiC composite by formation of mullite bonds between the grains of Al2O3 and SiC during sintering at 1$600^{circ}C$. This process is considered to enable the sintering of Al2O3/SiC composite at lower temperature and also to relieve the stress, produced by thermal expansion mismatch between Al2O3 and SiC. In fact, Al2O3/SiC composite prepared by oxidation of SiC was observed to be more effectively sintered and densified at lower temperature. Maximum density, flexural strength and microhardness were obtained with 5.65 vol% of mullite content in Al2O3/SiC composite.
Key words: $SiO_2$, layer, $Al_2O_3/SiC$ composite, Mullite, Thermal expansion mismatch, Oxidation of SiC
