Abstract : This report covers the inital phase of work done to obtain an understanding of the bond mechanism involved in chemically bonded zirconia. Chemical bond phenomena were investigated by means of thermal gravimetric analysis, differential thermal techniques, X-ray diffraction, and stoichiometry studies. Zirconium pyrophosphate (ZrP2O7) and hydrated zirconium tetrafluoride (ZrF4 XH2O) were identified as reaction products for zirconia chemically bonded by monofluorophosphoric acid. Plans for continuing work are also included. (Author)
