Study of Enamel Slip Particles Interaction Using Model Systems
The paper is aimed at determining the processes involved in the formation of an enamel slip structure during the slip drying stage. Using model systems, we have measured the capillary-crystallization forces of solid particles interaction through liquid interlayers of an enamel slip and its filtrates. The transition from frit solid components connected with liquid interlayers to “biscuit” during enamel slip drying has been discussed. When liquid evaporates from water suspension, the slip volume decreases, and isolated capillary bridges appear. Capillary layers cause structure compaction due to the impact on enamel frit particles. The evaporation of liquid results in the formation of crystal aggregates fixing solid particles. The differing behavior of particles is caused by the change in the composition of contact liquid.
