  • 80 Accesses

  • 10 Citations


The results of a study of the phase composition and mechanical properties of a ceramic based on ZrO2-Y2O3 after vacuum sintering of powders with complex morphology in a wide range of temperatures and sintering holding times are reported. Dense ceramic materials with high mechanical properties were obtained.
