The slip-casting process involves the use of a "sliding" application of a suspension of fine ceramic material powders in a liquid such as water or alcohol, with small amounts of secondary materials, such as dispersing agents and binders. This material is poured into a mold that is typically made of plaster. Mold is made of a wooden preparation so that many molds are easy to reproduce. The plaster samples pour from the poured slip into the compact form and the mold is formed on the surface of the tool. It dries and forms a dense part that removes the harmful air gap and shrinkage. After forming the part, it is sintered to produce the finished product
The anti-slip process has many advantages and disadvantages but can be cost-effective under the appropriate conditions of manufacture.
Some of these benefits include low tooling and cost creation, and this is a very simple manufacturing method. Another great advantage is that there is no expensive tool (until it comes to sintering, which is the cost of all ceramic production methods). The anti-slip procedure does not usually require highly qualified personnel.
In contrast, some of the disadvantages include the fact that this process is quite labor-intensive, resulting in slow manufacturing speeds. For a higher production level, many molds are required and professional mixing is vital for repeatability.
The final casting is a very effective way for small and medium volumes to be made of ceramic materials in a wide range of simple and fairly complex components.
