Ramesh, P. Byrne, S. Hampshire and M. J. Pomeroy Materials Research Centre, University of Limerick, Ireland Abstract The oxidation behaviour of yttria denscjied p-sialon materials (Si~6_Z~AIZ0,N~s_,~) with z-values of 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and 3.0 at 1350°C is reported for times up to 256 h. The sialons can be grouped into two categories with respect to oxidation kinetics and predominant crystalline phases formed in the surface layers. For the z= O-2 to I.0 materials, changes in oxidation parabolic rate constant occur after 128 h and yttrium disilicate or cristobalite are the major crystalline oxidation products within the surface layers. For the higher z-value materials, no changes in parabolic oxidation rate are observed and mullite is the predominant phase formed. Examination of cross-sectioned specimens of the z =0.2 and 3.0 materials indicates changes in morphology consistent with those reported for the surface layers. The kinetics and mechanism of oxidation and morpholo- gical development of the oxide scale are discussed in terms of additive d$iision efects. 0 1997 Elsevier Science Limited.
