    Abstract: Al2O3/Ag composite ceramics were fabricated by the use of mechanical milling and pressureless sintering. Al2O3 + 10 wt.% Ag were mixed and milled during 12 h at 300 rpm in a horizontal mill, then with the powder mixture it was conformed cylindrical samples by uniaxial pressing using 300 MPa. The pressed samples were sintered during 1 h in an electr... Show More
