Abstract: The reaction mechanisms observed when sintering loose Cr2O3-CaF2 powder mixtures were analyzed, and the influence of the sintering parameters on the reaction behavior is presented. Using x-ray diffraction (XRD), energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and differential thermal analysis (DTA) measurements, CaCrO4 was shown to be the reaction product when sintering in air. The reaction occurs in two steps: CaF2 transforms to CaO at the Cr2O3 -CaF2 interface, followed by a CaO-Cr2O3 interaction, which creates the reaction product. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis showed an increasing loss of CaF2 with increasing sintering temperature and heating rate, while an opposite evolution of the amount of reaction product was observed.
