Glassy Carbon — Thermal Expansion

The thermal expansion of the glassy carbon sample shows a linear range up to 2300°C and subsequently a strong increase of the expansion coefficient up to 2700°C. The sharp bend in the expansion curve at 2326°C shows the maximum SinteringSintering is a production process for forming a mechanically strong body out of a ceramic or metallic powder. sintering temperature which was applied in the manufacturing process of this carbon product.
