Rare-earth doped sialons have been studied to compare the effects of different stabilising cations (Nd, Gd and Yb) on the phase content and microstructures of alpha'/beta' composites, and on the degree of alpha'-->beta' transformation following heat-treatment of the samples at 1450 degrees C. Heat-treatment of the Gd and Yb sialons resulted in crystallisation of the residual glassy phase into Gd-aluminate or Yb-garnet, respectively, with very little transformation of alpha' to beta' taking place. In contrast, heat-treatment of the Nd sialons readily promoted the transformation of alpha' to beta', with a corresponding evolution of Nd-Aluminate or Nd-Wollastonite. In addition, beta-Si3N4 additions were carried out to evaluate its effectiveness as a seeding aid for beta-sialon formation, such seeding mechanisms were effective in the Nd system but did not have a significant influence on beta sialon development in the Gd and Yb systems.
