Abstract : The effects of type of wood fiber, ratio of wood fiber to refractory particulate material and ratio of coarse to fine particles of particulate material in the compact were studied using two firing schedules and two types of suspending and binding systems. The suspending and binding systems were; an organic system (corn starch) whose final products would burn out on firing in an oxidizing atmosphere; and an inorganic system (aluminum chlorhydroxide) whose final products after firing would be the same as the refractory particulate material in the compact. The organic binder proved to be more effective than the inorganic binder. It provided more rapid drain times in felting, higher green densities and better sintering at 2500 F. (Author)
