Abd Rahman , Hamimah and Shahrudin, K.F. and Ainuddin, A. R. and Basri, Hatijah (2006) Development of SiC/zeolite porous ceramic. In: Young Researchers Conference on Applied Sciences (CAS 2006), 13-14, June 2006, Kuala Lumpur.



SiC/zeolite porous ceramics were prepared by powder pressing method. In this study, SiC and zeolites of clinoptilolite type were mixed in 3:1 ratio by weight. Meanwhile, yeast was used as pore former agent. Alumina was used as a sintering aids and glycerol as a dispersing agent. The amount of yeast has a strong influence on porosity. The mixtures with 50wt% and 55wt% yeast, sintered at 1300 °C gave a high percentage of porosity which is 85.40% and 84.02% respectively. They exhibit the pore size between 40μm to 100μm. The porous ceramics obtained may have a potential as a filter.
