Formatted abstract
The feasibility of reducing the amount of loftable fibres in aluminosilicate blankets by coating with sol-gel zirconia was studied. A zirconium alkoxide based solution was employed to coat small samples of blanket using a dip-coating technique. The zirconia coatings and two grades of blanket were analysed using DTA, XRD, SEM and optical microscopy techniques to characterize any reactions and phase changes occurring in the system over a range of temperatures. It was found that dip-coated samples fired at temperatures of 700–800°C displayed reasonably coherent coatings providing an “anchoring” effect at the surface of the material by bonding loose surface fibres in a network of zirconia.
