It appears very clear from the table that the porosity content was significantly reduced after sintering. The major reduction in porosity was obtained with 20wt% reinforcement.

The metal sintering technology is now qualified in the automotive sector after 5-7 years of development.
Nevertheless, it is important to determine the best method among the three because the green density can generally affect the final relative density at the same sintering conditions [21].
BGO ceramics were sintering in a thermomechanical analyzer (TMA, 60 Shimadzu) with different pressures (0, 0.10, 0.14, and 0.18 MPa) and heated between two alumina disks.
Thus, the aim of this study is to investigate the impact of preheating and sintering conditions on the properties of DSM-derived ceramsite.
The main components of iron ore powder, sintered flux, and sintering return mines are listed in Table 1.
The glassy phase was formed by eutectic reaction between [Ta.sub.2][O.sub.5] and Zr[O.sub.2] at the sintering temperature of 1900[degrees]C, because eutectic temperature is less than 1887[degrees]C in the [Ta.sub.2][O.sub.5]-Zr[O.sub.2] system.
3) During the sintering process, the compact is heated, usually in a protective atmosphere, at a temperature below the melting point of the main constituent so that the powdered particles weld together and confer sufficient strength to the object for the intended use.
While sintering of powdered metals like those used in nanoparticle inks occurs below the normal melting point of these metals, it still requires heating the materials, which limits the selection of substrates that can be used.
