Monazite is a phosphate mineral con-taining rare-earth metals. It occurs usually in small isolated crystals. It has a hardness of 5.0 to 5.5 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. There are at least four different kinds of monazite, depending on elemental composition of the mineral ...

 

More Cost Efficient Process.

The objective of MONAMIX project is to demonstrate the potential use of mixed REOs obtained directly from monazite concentrates, with naturally occurring composition, as dopant in the design of high temperature oxide coatings and sintered zirconia-based oxide materials. This results ...

A hydro-chemical method for monazite concentrates purification by selective leaching and their usage for hydrothermal synthesis of mixed nanostructured zirconia doped with different REO/ZrO2 molar ratios by a cost efficient process will be developed. The mixed REO-ZrO2 materials obtained will be used as target material to obtain TBCs at TRL 4 and validated on industrial systems by RF sputtering and electron beam deposition and study their structural stability vs. mixed REO/ZrO2 molar ratios for TBCs aiming to increase the lifetime of Ni/Cr alloys or reduce the CRMs content in substrate alloys. Bulk mixed REO-ZrO2 will be obtained ...
