Processing, reaction mechanisms and properties of oxidation-formed Al2O3-matrix compositesN. CLAUSSEN

Reaction forming of non-oxides has been investigated and applied for long. Oxidation forming, however, has only recently been introduced in the form of directed molten metal oxidation (DMO) either into free space or into porous ceramics preforms. The newest technology in this respect is reaction bonding of aluminum oxide (RBAO) somewhat in analogy to RBSN. Both forming methods are outlined and compared.
