The electrical resistivity of porcelain samples has been measured from room temperature to 1200 degrees C and it was found to depend on the concentration of the phases as well as the size and size-distribution of mullite crystals. The resistivity of porcelain was found to decrease with increase in amount, size and asymmetry of size-distribution of mullite crystals but increase with increase in quartz, cristobalite and glass content. Irrespective of constitution, resistivity of porcelain decreased with rise in temperature from about 10(13) ohm-cm at room temperature to about 10(4) ohm-cm at 1200 degrees C. The change in electrical resistivity of porcelain was primarily controlled by the defect structure of mullite and the composition and viscosity of the glassy phase.
