Sintered SnO2-based ceramics are considered to be promising construction materials for manufacturing stable electrodes for various technological applications. The high-temperature interactions of components, important with respect to the sintering capacity and consequently the densification, have been investigated in the binary systems SnO2-Sb2O3 and SnO2-CuO, and the ternary system SnO2-Sb2O3-CuO. In contrast to the Sno2-Sb2O3 mixtures with a poor sintering ability, the binary SnO2-CuO and ternary SnO2-Sb2O3-CuO mixtures exhibit significantly improved sintering properties owing to the formation of liquid phase (eutectic melt) in the presence of copper(II)oxide.
