Abstract

Colloidal ceramic binders have been used to strengthen ceramic green shapes produced by Selective Laser Sintering. This paper focuses on the effectiveness of the colloid infiltration with respect to the physical properties of the colloidal binder. Mass gains, strength gains, and dimensional changes resulting from infiltration were monitored. Controlled drying experiments were conducted to predict the factors influencing drying times for complex shapes.
