Resumen:
Ceramic layers based on calcium silicate non-substituted and substituted by Zn with different thickness, were developed by immersing porous Y-TZP disks into SiO2?CaO?ZnO?P2O5 glass suspensions with ZnO contents in the range of 0?20 mol%. The effect of the disk surface porosity and the slip solid loading on the formation of the dip coated layer was investigated. Special emphasis was given to the ZnO content of the dip coating slurries and its influence on the thickness and composition of the sintered layer. The greater chemical stability of the 20 mol% ZnO-substituted glass powder during aqueous colloidal processing resulted in slips with low viscosity values; whereas the high dissolution rate of the glass having 10 mol% ZnO significantly increased the slip viscosity. The liquid entrainment mechanism at the initial stage was accelerated either by using 10 mol% ZnO-substituted glass slips or by increasing the slip solid loading. The casting rate for longer immersion times markedly increased by increasing the surface porosity of Y-TZP disks. Sintered layers with thickness ~30-70% lower were produced using the glass dip coating slip with 20 mol% ZnO in comparison to 10 mol% ZnO. The main crystalline phase of the coated sintered layers was Ca3Si3O9, Ca2ZnSi2O7 and ZnSiO4 for the glasses with 0, 10 and 20 mol% ZnO, respectively.
