Al 2 O 3 -dispersed ZrO 2 -3mol%Y 2 O 3 composites have been prepared by slip casting and electrophoretic deposition to compare the sinterability and microstructure, using three commercially-available Al 2 O 3 powders. Composites were prepared by pressureless sintering at 1300 °C. The consolidated (green) density, sintered density, grain size and dispersion are compared for both colloidal techniques with the aim of improving the homogeneity and reducing the necessary temperature for sintering.
