Abstract : The production of high strength aluminum oxide fiber has been achieved by means of plastic extrusion and solid state sintering of selected alumina powders at elevated temperatures. The processing variables for producing fibers possessing transverse rupture strengths of 100,000 psi are presented. The variation of elastic modulus and transverse rupture strength with temperature for alumina fiber is reported for temperatures up to 1300 C. (Author).
