Basic ceramic firing cycle. The oxide ceramics usually are fired in an air atmosphere, which is oxidizing. The nonoxide compositions require protective or reducing atmospheres to prevent oxidation. The ferroelectrics and ferromagnetics are heat-treated in controlled oxide atmospheres to develop the desired properties. Composites of metal and ceramics are fired in a reducing atmosphere such as hydrogen to protect the metal from oxidizing. 1 COOLING CURVES The cooling curve representing a crystalline material that cools from a melt is shown in Figure 5-1.

21 Micrm,tructure formed by agglomerating fine particles into larger granulars. 3 PLASTIC FORMING Parts formed in the plastic condition utilize the uniqueness of clay in developing plasticity when mixed with water. The plastic state alIows deformation or shaping without rupture, and is a technique widely used by artists to make ceramic ware. Two commercial techniques are used to form ware in the plastic condition: extrusion and jiggering. Extrusion involves the forcing of a stiff plastic mix through a die orifice.

Because silicon has a valence of 4, it distributes this charge equally to the four oxygen ions that are at the corners ofthe tetrahedron. Therefore, each silicon to oxygen bond has a strength of 1. Because oxygen has a valence of 2, each oxygen has half of its valence satisfied by the silicon. FIGURE 10-1. Silicon tetrahedron.
