Silica-based, slip cast ceramic materials for the production of metallic components

A silica-based composition and the related slip casting process, have been optimized for the production of complex shapes components. These components are used in the production process of metallic materials with superior properties. Thanks to the optimized ceramic materials a higher process temperature is possible, and this leads to higher performances of the obtained metallic components. This research have been conducted in the frame of a contract with a private enterprise.
