Difficulty in consolidation of SiC, particularly at a lower temperature and in ambient atmosphere, necessitates the use of second phase bonding materials like clay and other aluminosilicates. In such systems, oxidation of SiC is difficult to control and it goes on until substantial amount of glassy phase is formed which protects individual SiC grains from further oxidation. A high viscosity glass if used for the initial bonding of SiC grains along with a second phase material like clay, the above difficulties could be overcome. In the present investigation, 5% high viscous glass was used along with china clay and the results regarding the oxidation behaviour of SIC and mechanical properties of the sintered compacts were compared with those of the compositions without glass.
