Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC) have a wide interest for high temperature applications. The materials can be modified by the selection of the matrix precursor as well as of the reinforcing materials. C/C-composites can be easily modified by post-treatments with silicon in order to acquire different tribological properties from good sliding behaviour up to braking systems only depending on the manufacturing technique of these materials. It will be demonstrated during the presentation that the manufacturing depends on one hand side on the material which has to be manufactured and on the other side on the structural component and the number of parts which are required. Furthermore, it will also be shown, that silicon treatments can be performed up to a full conversion of C/C materials creating a new family of monolithic ceramic materials. Within the presentation detailed information will be given on possible processing routes as well as the resulting physical and mechanical properties of the materials.
