  • Gelcasting is a forming process similar to slip casting for making complex-shaped parts. In gelcasting, a slip of ceramic powders in a solution of organic monomers, is poured into a mold and is polymerized forming a strong, crosslinked solvent-polymer gel filled with the ceramic powder.
  • Gelcasting is a highly versatile fabrication process. It has been used to make parts ranging in size from <1 g to >6 kg. Complex shapes with thin sections as small as 0.2 mm have been gelcast. Conversely, large rods up to 4 inches in diameter have been made.
  • Gelcasting has been demonstrated in most of the major ceramic systems such as alumina, aluminum nitride, boron carbide, ferrites, silicon, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, zinc oxide, and zirconia as well as some of the more obscure ones such as cerium oxide, europium oxide, hydroxylapatite, and tin-doped indium oxide.
  • Highly porous Gel-casting ceramics are used in medical applications.
  • Transparent submicrometer grains alumina are formed by gel casting using agar as gelling.
  • Porous Gelcast ceramics for Bone Repair Implants.
  • Direct Gel-Casting of Zirconia for Dental Application.
  • Gelcasting has also been successfully used inmaking highly porous ceramics by direct foaming tech-niques .
  • Powder Injection Moulding (PIM) is a well-established forming technique for ceramics, particularly suited to the production of complex shapes.
