Preceramic paper may serve as a preform to manufacture single sheet as well as multilayer porous ferroelectric ceramic products. In this article, the authors discuss the formation, microstructure, and properties of preceramic papers highly loaded with BaTiO3 filler ranging from 70 to 80 vol% and their conversion into ceramic materials. In order to increase the density of the single sheets, post calendering is applied. These sheets are used for the fabrication of multilayer ceramics using warm lamination technique. After binder burnout and sintering up to 1300 °C for 2 h in air, porous paper-derived multilayer BaTiO3 is obtained. The effect of ceramic filler content and calendering on the residual porosity in sintered samples is studied. Furthermore, the influence of porosity on the microstructure, mechanical, dielectric, and piezoelectric properties of the sintered BaTiO3 ceramics is investigated.
