Pretreatment processing of gelcast green body before debinding
Gelcasting is a novel ceramic forming technology that could be used to manufacture high-performance ceramics with complex shape. However, there are some problems in debinding of large-size green body made by gelcasting. In this paper, a new pretreatment way before binder burn-out was introduced. By means of this pretreatment processing, large-size green bodies with no defects were successfully obtained.
