Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Phase transitions of high-temperature protoenstatite to the clinoenstatite in the process of cooling ceramic materials have been studied using high-temperature X ray phase analysis and differential thermal analysis. The methods of producing nonaging steatite ceramics with ultrafine protoenstatite crystals have been proposed, that allows to fabricate ceramic materials with improved performance.
