Abstract:

Techniques for flame glazing surface melting slip-cast fused silica were successfully developed using an oxyacetylene flame. A high degree of parameter flexibility was obtained with this flame. Requirements for producing strong dense ceramic-wood fiber felts using modified paper making techniques were determined on 1 2 2 wood fiber, alumina clay compositions. Highly dispersed andor fibrillose fibers, a solid con tents no greater than 2 wt.- and a flocculating system were found necessary. Indications were that type of clay used affected drain time but had little effect on green density of felts. Strong alumina-clay compacts of 50 to 60 lbcu ft fired density were obtained. Linear shrinkage was 11 to 12 however, this should decrease with decreasing clay content.
