The mechanical and tribological behaviors of the carbon/carbon (C/C) composites were evaluated by three-point bending and sliding wear tests. The effect of carbon fiber content on their mechanical behavior was also investigated. To produce the C/C composites, the precursor was introduced to the preforms by impregnating with phenolic solution. The C/C preforms were densified by thermal gradient chemical vapor infiltration. Results indicated that, the C/C composites show excellent mechanical and tribological properties. A kind of high performance brake materials was obtained.
