This mixture was then mixed with starch powder (with uniform particle size of ~ 10 µm) at various concentrations to achieve a final mixture. After cold iso-static pressing (CIP) at 200 MPa, the specimen was heated at 250 oC for 2 hours to promote the formation of the ZrP2O7 bonded Si3N4 with a porous structure, then heated at 550 oC for 2 hours to burn out the rest starch powder.
The presence of the oxynitride layer could also block the bubble formation during oxidation of Si3N4 in Ar-20% O2 2% Cl2 at 1300 oC. Moreover, outside of the silicon oxynitride layer, the higher oxygen potential may not support SiCl4 formation, and, as result, bubble formation does not occur on Si3N4, and therefore, it is not subject to accelerated oxidation under these conditions . 6. Oxidation of Hot Isostatically Pressed Silicon Nitride As mentioned earlier, for silicon nitride caramics, the oxidation resistance strongly depends on the quality and quantity of the sintering aids and taking into consideration of this, High Temperature Oxidation of Silicon Nitride Based Ceramics 19 the design of its microstructure can be tremendously improved .
The trend observed in the oxidation behaviour for NT 164-93 in the two different test environments were very similar to the previous work  for Si3N4 ceramics with additions of Yb2O3 as a sintering aid. During the oxidation in wet air, the dissolution of Si3N4 grains is fast but the diffusion of oxygen through the grain boundary becomes the rate controlling step as the oxidation time increases. Nevertheless, the dissolution of Si3N4 grains is the rate controlling step in air oxidation according to BackhausRicolut et al.
