Re: Bronze Clay?

More microwaved metal info.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0622055733.htm

"Powder metals do absorb microwave radiation and can be heated and sintered, using microwaves... Because microwave sintering takes less time and lower energy levels, it is cost effective... We obtained essentially fully dense bodies with substantially improved mechanical properties compared to identical bodies sintered in the conventional manner"

Now I'm on the hunt for the right binder formula. I wonder how long before we will see the first Microwave powered fine arts foundries
