Abstract:

A method for producing high technology ceramics with minimal porosity comprising the steps of filling a can with a constituent powder of a ceramic, creating a vacuum in the can and maintaining the vacuum throughout the entire process outgassing the powder in the can by placing a furnace around the area of the can that encloses the powder and heating the furnace to at least 100 C removing the furnace after a minimum of five minutes of heating cold rolling the can in a rolling system igniting the powder so a localized propagation reaction front is created and hot rolling the can in the rolling system so the propagation reaction front is maintained between the rolls of the rolling system.
