Abstract

Porous alumina ceramics having unidirectionally aligned cylindrical pores were prepared by extrusion method and compared with porous ceramics having randomly distributed pores prepared by conventional method, and their gas permeability and mechanical properties were investigated. SEM micrographs of the porous alumina ceramics prepared by the extrusion method using nylon fibers as the pore former showed excellent orientation of cylindrical pores. The bending strength and Weibull modulus of the extruded porous alumina ceramics with 39% porosity were 156 MPa and 17, respectively. These mechanical properties of extruded samples were higher than those of the conventional porous alumina ceramics. The strength decreased from 156 to 106 MPa with increasing pore size from 8.5 to 38 μm. The gas permeability of the extrusion samples is higher than that of the conventional samples and increased with increasing of porosity and pore size.
