By sintering ceramic powder with metal powder under very high pressure and temperature, elastic and plastic deformable metal rich ceramic can be created. Although the metal the powder was added to the ceramic powder, thus sintered bulk ceramic does not show sign of metal by X-ray diffraction check and elastically and plastically deformable. In addition, high temperature resistivity of the ceramic is maintained. The ceramic created by this technique is thought to useful for gas turbine blades without cooling by air and can operate under higher temperature blade than the metal turbine blades now employed to raise the fuel efficiency much higher. Not only for aerospace applications, it can be used very wide area of industrial materials.
