 Boehmite Sol 함침에 의한 3Y-TZP 소결체의 표면 강화 최기식, 김영정1, 김환 서울대학교 공과대학 무기재료공학과1선문대학교 공과대학 재료공학과 Surface Strengthening of 3Y-TZP Ceramics by Boehmite Sol Infiltration ABSTRACT To improve the low resistance of ceramics to tensile stress, many techniques, for introducing and retaining surface compressive stress have been suggested. In present work, in order to introduce the compressive stress on the surface of TZP ceramics TZP-Al2O3 composites were made with infiltration technique. Highly porous 3Y-TZP pre-sintered specimens were submerged in AlOOH(boehmite) sol and the sol penetrated into them through open pore channels with moderate depth after that specimens were sintered. It was known that controlling the number of infiltration time can vary the amount of Al2O3 phase and the fraction of alumina at surface reached up to 18%. The depth of composite surface layer were 100~200 ${mu}{textrm}{m}$, and these were acceptable in surface strengthening which were proved by Vickers hardness indentation method.
