Abstract

It has been proposed that a thin polymer layer applied to the surfaces of finely divided ceramic powders would serve as a suitable intermediate binder for Selective Layer Sintering of ceramic pans. In this study, the effects of completeness and fraction of coa nd particle size distribution on sintering rates and strengths of coated ridized glass are examined. The effect of the coating as a binder during Selective Layer Sintering as well as the binder's burnout capability during post processing steps are also investigated.
