Experience on a low cost way to obtain Al-Ti ceramic foams
Rights accessOpen Access
An experience on a simple process for producing alumina-rutile-mullite ceramic foams by using aqueous particulate slurries is proposed. The sintering process is achieved in one unique thermal process at 1200 ºC in air. The description of the process, physical properties and morphological studies are reported. Microstructure is studied by using confocal optical microscopic technique. The highly active porous foam structure of this ceramic material produced according to the low-cost process presented here could extend its use in a broad range of applications, such as catalytic, biomedical scaffolds, filtering, etc.
