Abstract

The development of zirconia toughened alumina (ZTA) ceramics from precursor materials constitutes part of an advanced materials program at Curtin University of Technology. The study examines the processing-microstructure-property relationships in ZTA ceramics when aluminium hydrate (ALOOH) and zirconium carbonate (3ZrO2.Co2.H2O) are used as precursor materials. In this paper the preliminary results are presented for a novel processing route for producing zirconia toughened alumina ceramics. Future work will focus on further refinements to do the processing route and optimization of the microstructure-property relationships.
