Organic Additives and Ceramic Processing, Second Edition: With Applications in Powder Metallurgy, Ink, and Paint can be used as a textbook and also as a reference source for working ceramists. This edition reports much new data from the author's laboratory, as well as 1996 literature references for further study. New information is presented on such topics as high solids loadings in slips, applying external lubricants after spray drying, optimizing dry pressing, achieving very high green density, and some logical thinking procedures for solving industrial problems. While the book is designed to be easy to understand, it also provides considerable theoretical depth for advanced development engineering. The subjects covered include organic chemistry; polymers, colloids, dispersants, binders, lubricants, and other additives. Emphasis is given to environmental considerations, facilitating binder burnout, and insuring constant shrinkage. Typical ceramic forming processes such as slip casting, extrusion and others are also covered with a view towards the suppliers who provide chemicals to the ceramics industry.Much information obtained from related technology such as printing is presented, as well as potential applications of ceramics knowledge in the other direction: making novel inks, paints and sintered metal objects.
