Two different chemical processing routes were successfully used for the fabrication of lithium aluminosilicate (LAS) specimens having dense and homogeneous microstructure with an essentially pore-free state. These are (i) sol-gel route using the hydrolysis-condensation reaction of metal alkoxides and (ii) mixed colloidal processing route. Lowering Li content in the sol-gel-derived LAS significantly enhanced densification and retarded the crystallization. The β-spodumene (∼0.8 μm) seeding in the sol-gel-derived LAS modified the sequence of phase transformations and lowered the crystallization temperature by 120 °C. Therefore, combining the epitaxial seeding with the sol-gel process, one can bring down the crystallization temperature to the sintering temperature range (∼800 °C). Similarly, the LAS gel prepared by the mixed colloidal processing route exhibited a noticeable shrinkage over a broad temperature range (600–950 °C) and produced a dense sintered body with an essentially pore-free microstructure.
