Abstract

This paper describes the characterisations of ceramic composites consisting of different compositions of alumina and zirconia. The material characterisations were performed from the aspects of densification, hardness and fracture toughness. The surface morphology and elemental composition of the composite were studied using SEM and EDX respectively. As for physical properties, the highest attainable hardness and fracture toughness were 11.35 GPa and 3.41 MPa m0.5respectively for ceramic composite consisted of 80 wt % Zr and 20 wt% Al. Sintering at 1150oC assisted in the densification of ceramics.
