In the present study, interactions between AlN and SiAlON laminated couples were investigated after gas pressure (GPS) and spark plasma sintering (SPS) by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive x-ray analysis (EDX) with the aim to produce laminated composites. In the laminated couples sintered by GPS, a significant reaction zone (∼100-150 μm), containing a high aspect ratio of elongated polytypoid grains, was observed at the interface. However, in the case of laminated couples sintered by SPS, a considerably thin reaction region (∼2-3 μm) was observed, elongated polytypoid grain formations were also detected.
