Synthesis of Ceramics

  • The Ceramic Society of Japan


Ceramics are originally defined as sintered bodies of inorganic compounds. Examples are pottery and porcelain that have been manufactured since early times and have a long history. It is difficult to process minerals into various shapes. However, if crushed mineral powders are formed into a desired shape and sintered by heating, products having high strength and functions required for practical use can be manufactured. Previously, crushed natural minerals were used as raw materials, but high-purity powders processed by chemical methods are currently being used. Sintering is essential for the production of ceramic materials, regardless of raw powder manufacturing methods.
