Sintering and Microstructure of PZT-ZrO2 Composites

Composite PZT materials containing the dispersed ZrO2 phase were prepared by hot-pressing. Kinetics behaviour of both phases after subsequent firing was studied. It was found that the PZT grains follow d3 ∝ t kinetics relation, whereas the behaviour of the ZrO2 phase is more complicated.
