Abstract: The electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is a very promising process for shaping compacts, especially for nanopowders. Up till now EPD is not used on a large-scale production of ceramic products. Additionally, the higher cost of nanopowders was also a barrier for the development of new products. As the deposition rate at EPD is independent of particle size, it is an ideal process for shaping compacts of powder mixtures with nanopowders. Silica and zirconia powders were used as model systems to demonstrate the adva…
