Gelcasting is an attractive novel ceramic forming process for making high-quality, complex-shaped ceramic parts. The idea of this method is based on a slurry made from ceramic powder and water based monomer solutions is poured into a mold. The ceramic slurry consists of a ceramic powder, organic or inorganic solvent, organic monomer and free radical initiator. Water is a preferred solvent. At appropriate conditions is possible to start the polymerization in the ceramic slurry.
