Abstract

Alcoa XA-16, a high-reactivity alumina, is shown to embrace several characteristics of a non-ideal powder -- a distribution of particle sizes, non-spherical particle shape, and modification of surface and bulk chemistry. An analytical technique is presented for establishing the cumulative particle size distribution of a sub-micron powder and a statistical 'effectiveness of correction ' parameter is added to the initial stage analysis of Johnson and Cutler.
