Ceramic Materials: Processes, Properties, and Applications by Philippe Boch, Jean-Claude Nièpce

By Philippe Boch, Jean-Claude Nièpce

This booklet is essentially an advent to the mammoth kinfolk of ceramic fabrics. the 1st half is dedicated to the fundamentals of ceramics and strategies: uncooked fabrics, powders synthesis, shaping and sintering. It discusses conventional ceramics in addition to “technical” ceramics – either oxide and non-oxide – that have a number of developments.The moment half specializes in homes and purposes, and discusses either structural and practical ceramics, together with bioceramics. The fields of erosion, slicing and tribology illustrate the significance of mechanical homes. It additionally bargains with the questions/answers of a ceramicist concerning electronuclear expertise. As chemistry is an important self-discipline for ceramicists, the publication exhibits, particularly, what smooth chemistry can give a contribution because of sol-gel equipment.

Covering the Danube valley and the Rhine valley. Later, in the West, the civilization of megaliths would develop, characterized, as regards ceramics, by shapes that are not decorated or with a few gripping buttons. Painted ceramics Painted ceramics also became very quickly a developed means of expression, as early as the first ceramic periods. Paintings, generally of mineral origin, slip (very watered-down fine clay) of red metallic oxides (hematite, goethite or red clays like ochres), black metallic oxides (manganese), kaolinite or calcite for white, are executed either before firing on dried ceramics or after firing.

1) [PER 94]. e. pastes with high porosity, fired at a temperature lower than 1,000°C. In the first few millennia that followed the invention of ceramics, pastes were often coarse, and 32 Ceramic Materials potters understood very quickly the need to modify the intrinsic properties of raw earth to obtain better resistance to drying and firing. For this purpose, they added to the raw material non-plastic particles (tempers), which to some extent constitute the “skeleton” of the artifact. These tempers are of various types: mineral, organic, natural or anthropic.

Enamel sheets, to cover and protect steel sheets that are part of our refrigerators and washing machines. These enamel sheets are too often forgotten in works dealing with ceramics and glasses – but as these enamels are primarily amorphous and prepared by melting, it is better to classify them among glasses than among ceramics; – silica products – but it is common practice to classify them among technical ceramics, therefore paradoxically, to exclude them from silicate ceramics. Though non-exhaustive, this list shows the variety of the products involved.
