An improved thermoreversible gelcasting technique has been developed which affords the direct casting of laminates. A higher boiling point solvent, pentanol, in conjunction with a better dispersant permitted higher solids loading and optimized processing time for the gel. The technique has been demonstrated for Al2O3 bilayers of two densities.
