The coating of ceramic powder particles has recently gained importance and is therefore used more frequently.

Binder jetting is one of the 7 3d printing processes, depicted in the standard DIN EN ISO/ASTM. In addition to vat photo polymerisation (VPP), material extrusion (MEX) and material jetting (MJT), binder jetting is used to produce ceramic parts as well.
The microstructure of a material is one of the most important parameters – if not THE most important – to be used to assess the quality of a newly developed material or component. Therefore, information about the microstructure can be obtained by porosity measurements or strength tests, since these properties are greatly influenced by the microstructure. Directly, the microstructure of e.g. technical ceramics can be studied using a wide range of methods that have been available to industry and the end-user market since the last century to complement conventional optical microscopy.
