Sintering of raw dolomite and hydroxides derived from dolomite was carried out in the temperature range 1350-1650 degrees C. The hydroxide derived from dolomite was developed through pre-calcination of dolomite followed by its hydration. For hydroxide development, after precalcination one sample was air-quenched and the other powder was furnace cooled before hydration. The air quenched samples showed better densification than that of the furnace cooling process at the same temperature. Fe2O3 addition enhances sintering by liquid formation at higher temperature. The grain size of doloma with Fe2O3 addition is bigger than that without additive. Hydration resistance was related to densification and grain size of sintered dolomite.
