1 Rapid and High Temperature Sintering with simultaneous
application of load
Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) The diameter of the graphite die is 12.7 mm or 20 mm and the
heating rate is 50 - 200°C/minute. Appropriate load (6 - 7 KN or 50 MPa) will
be applied on the sample during the sintering process and also this is
depending on the size of the sample. Sintering will be done under vacuum of
15 Pa. Maximum Sintering temperature is 1400°C. Powder weight will
be calculated depending on the final size of the sample.
