Paper Title:
Effect of Electrochemical Treatment on the Surface Structure and Tensile Strength of Carben Coated CVD SiC Fiber
  Abstract

CVD (chemical vapor deposition) SiC continuous fiber is used as reinforcement of metal matrix composites because of its high strength, high stiffness and elevated temperature stability. In this work, anodic oxidation method was used to treat the surface of carbon coated SiC fiber. Then the surface of treated fiber was compared with untreated one by scan electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). SiC was detected on the surface of untreated carbon-rich coating. It is proved by XPS that SiC was transformed into SiO2 after treatment. About 100~200nm thick oxidation layer was detected on the surface of carbon-rich coating and the structure of double coatings formed. Because the surface of fiber became smooth and the tensile stress on it was relaxed after treatment, the tensile strength of fiber was improved by 8%~20% average and the dispersing ratio of it was reduced.
