In this article, the advantages of combined sintering in comparison with the conventional one, of mechanically activated magnesium titanate ceramic were investigated. The stoichiometric mixtures of MgO and TiO2 were mechano-chemically activated for 0, 10, 40, 80 and 160 minutes by ball milling and then isostatically pressed (CIP) to form green bodies. Conventional sintering was realized by heating up to 1400 degrees C and hold for 30 minutes in air atmosphere. Resulting ceramic samples with closed porosity were post-sintered by pressure assisted technique Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) at 1280 degrees C/3h in argon atmosphere with a pressure of 200 MPa. The best results were observed in the case of samples post-sintered by HIP, when single-phase MgTiO3 samples with relative density of 96% were prepared.
