    Abstract

    Molybdenum disilicide (MoSi2) has many desirable properties which make it an excellent material for aerospace applications. This demands a reliable processing route to manufacture components with complicated shapes. The suitability of using slip-casting technique to fabricate MoSi2 components has been studied. In this study, we have optimized the pH of the aqueous solution to get a reasonable suspension without adding any dispersing agents or sintering aids. Further, it is found that the 50 wt.% solid loading is best to get a compact of 92% density. xA9; 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
