The research group of ICV-CSIC has successfully prepared Al2O3 crucibles with inner coatings of Y2O3
In the frame of the project “Ti alloying by association of colloid-chemical and power-metallurgical techniques” in collaboration with the GTP-UC3M group has been prepared Al2O3 crucibles with inner coatings of Y2O3 by sequential slip casting from suspensions of nanoparticles (Fig. 1). These coatings allow sintering highly reactive metals at high temperatures such as Titanium (Fig. 2).
