Abstract Share this page

Porous yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) ceramics were successfully fabricated by the dry pressing method with different size (1.8–20μm) and amount (2–60vol.%) of mono-dispersed poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA) micro-balls. Different PMMA additions with different size and amount were investigated to achieve optimal thermal and mechanical properties. With increases of the amount of PMMA, the porosity of porous YSZ ceramics ranges from 7.29% to 51.6%, the flexural strength increases firstly and then decreases, and the thermal conductivity decreases continuously. With decreases of the diameter of PMMA micro-balls, the mean pore size and thermal conductivity of porous YSZ ceramics decrease, and the flexural strength of porous YSZ ceramics with same porosity increases firstly and then decreases. The porous YSZ ceramics with a higher porosity (18.44±1.24%), the highest flexural strength (106.88±3.2179MPa) and low thermal conductivity (1.105±0.15W/mK) can be obtained when the particle diameter and the amount of PMMA are 5μm and 20vol.%, respectively.
