Half-Century Epoch of Domestic Quartz Ceramic Development. Part 1


The bases of contemporary quartz ceramic technology and refractories were laid down in the second half of the 1960s. In this technology single-stage methods were implemented for preparing quartz glass (fuzed quartz) HCBS, and diluted and stabilized wet-milled highly concentrated binder suspensions (HCBS) by gravitational mechanical stirring and activated sintering of highly dense semiproduct. The bases of technology developed in this way have been implemented extensively in the manufacture of other ceramic and refractory materials prepared by HCBS technology, and also in the production of materials for rocket, aviation, and a number of other branches of technology.
