Abstract: Abstract A novel agglomeration technique, based on flow induced phase inversion (FIPI) is described and applied to the batch preparation of polyethylene‐bound abrasive calcite agglomerates. Water soluble polymers are used to agglomerate the needle‐like crystals of tetraacetylethylene diamine and also sodium chloride crystals. In a typical isothermal FIPI agglomeration process primary particles are dispersed in the molten binder, which is subsequently inverted by the addition of sufficient amount of primary pa…
