The paper presents the results of investigations on hot pressure sintering under the alternating current. The powders of different grain sizes were used for the sintering to investigate the impact of the powder on the final sintered structure and relative density. The additional experiments were focused on the kinetics of the Al2O3 nanopowders sintering. They confirmed that the time of the process duration is dependent on the temperature and the applied pressure. However, compared to the powders of tungsten monocarbide, it depends on the temperature rise speed in rather small degree. Discussion of the results pointed out that the obtained data, both theoretical and experimental one, confirmed possibility that during the sintering process the dislocations might appear and spread. It seemed reasonable to assume that in the low voltage regime the activated sliding with diffusion accommodation prevails, while in the high voltage regime the dislocation creep does.
