The product of a sintering operation.
A shaped body composed of metal powders and produced by sintering with or without previous compacting.
(mineralogy)
(petrology)
A chemical sedimentary rock deposited by precipitation from mineral waters, especially siliceous sinter and calcareous sinter.

sinter

To form a material from fusible powder by holding the pressed powder at a temperature just below its melting point for a period of time; the particles are fused (sintered) together, but the mass, as a whole, does not melt.

A significant change between un-sintered and sintered densities was observed with the addition of SiC particles and the trend continues with the increasing wt.% of SiC, it was attributed to shrinkage of pores during sintering [18].
