The physically adsorbed water, which is the dipole water molecule, is removed by heating to temperatures above IOO°C. The chemically adsorbed water, which is made up of ions (H,O+ and OH-), is removed gradually with temperatures up to IOOO°C. The lattice water, which is the hydroxide group in the chemical formula, begins to be released at temperatures around 600°C. Drying results in two significant changes: (I) there is a shrinkage as (A) SUSPENSION/INTERPARTICLE FIGURE 4-12. 00 (8) PORE WATER Drying process after plastic forming or slip casting.

3 THERMAL CONDITIONING GLASS Glass materials have very low strength characteristics [6]. In fact, glass has an acceptable working strength of 1000 psi. Its strength is limited primarily in tension, as glass has about 10 times more compression strength than tensile strength. To overcome some of the strength limitation, thermal conditioning is used to strengthen processed glass. Typically, the surfaces are placed in compression, which effectively makes the glass appear stronger. The various types of thermal treatments include: PLATENS r"OL"" FIGURE 5-6.

4 CASTING Slip casting uses a liquid vehicle, usually water, to transport the powders during forming. The slip, which is about the consistency of pancake batter, is poured into porous plaster of Paris molds to remove the water and thus allow compaction of the powders. Clay is the suspending agent in clay-based ware where electrolytes can be used to impart charges on nonplastic powders. The clay keeps the powders in suspension while the water is being removed by the porous mold. Slip casting can be used to produce solid ware, as shown in Figure 4-9 DRIED WARE FIGURE 4-9.
