MICROSTRUCTURE AND FRACTURE-TOUGHNESS OF HOT-PRESSED ZIRCONIA-TOUGHENED SIALON

By 

Abstract

Zirconia-toughened sialon composites have been fabricated using conventional hot-pressing techniques. The fracture toughness and microstructure were determined for CeO2- and Y2O3-stabilized ZrO2 additives and also as a function of volume percent ZrO2. The yttria system showed a linear increase in fracture toughness with increasing volume fraction zirconia content while the ceria-stabilized system exhibited a peak in fracture toughness at 20 vol% ZrO2 content. The fracture toughness at 800-degrees-C was measured and correlated with the microstructure. High-temperature stability was determined and it was found that the deleterious nitride phases of zirconium could be precluded from the microstructure
