Displacive Compensation of Porosity

    801

    Displacive Compensation of Porosity (DCP), a novel method for fabricating shaped monolithic ceramics, uses a chemical reaction to fill preformed, porous ceramic material with a different ceramic compound, resulting in super-dense material. This process works at relatively low temperatures and therefore, is more economical. The resulting compound can be molded into complex shapes and offers improved protection at significantly lower weight.
