Effects of Suspension Composition on Defects in Aqueous Tape Casting of Alumina Ceramics: A Rheological Study

In aqueous alumina tape casting, the effects of altering the composition of the suspensions, the binders and the casting thickness were studied. The rheological behavior of the suspensions and the defects of the dried tapes were examined and the relationships between them are discussed. The changes in the defect regions reported in the previous paper were related with the rheological properties with variations of the binder, the composition and the casting thickness. The shear thinning factor increased with the organic content and the solid content (the decrease of water content). The apparent viscosity increased with the shear thinning factor. The relation between the shear thinning factor and the log apparent viscosity was similar for all binder types. In the relation between the defect free region and the rheological properties, the defect free region became narrower with increasing casting thickness. The defect free region is independent of binder type. Therefore, the thicker tape is more difficult to produce in aqueous alumina tape casting. Knowledge of the rheological properties of the suspensions could help Predict the defect type and the possibility of defect free dried tapes.
