 가압소결한 질화규소의 산화거동에 미치는 소결 첨가제의 영향 최헌진, 김영욱, 이준근 KIST 세라믹스부 Effect of Sintering Additives on the Oxidation Behavior of Hot Pressed Silicon Nitride ABSTRACT Oxidation behavior of hot-pressed silicon nitride ceramics with various sintering additives has been investigated. The weight gain of each specimens has shown in the range of 0.11 mg/$textrm{cm}^2$ ~3.4 mg/$textrm{cm}^2$ at 140$0^{circ}C$ for 192 h and eleven compositions have shown good oxidation resistance with the weight gain below 0.5 mg/$textrm{cm}^2$. The oxidation rate has been shown to obey the parabolic rate law and the oxidized surface has consisted of $alpha$-cristobalite and M2Si2O7 or MSiO3 (M=rare earth or transition metals) phase. The oxidation rate of each specimens has related to the eutectic temperature between additive oxide and SiO2, and ionic radius of additive oxides, respectively. From the above results, it could be concluded that the oxidation behavior of hot pressed silicon nitride is dominated by the high temperature properties of grain boundary glassy phase and the high temperature properties of grain boundary glassy phase are affected by the ionic radius of additive oxides.
