The Interlayer Designation for ZTM Ceramics and Fibre Joining
The joining materials of density ceramics and the fibre would be potential application value as seal materials at high temperature condition or in aerospace field. According to chemical composition consistent principle of ceramics/interfaces/fibre, the interlayer of mullite ingredient was designed which based on the ZTM ceramics composition. Using the absorber-microwaves properties of Al-Si alloy, the joining of ZTM ceramics and fibre materials with interlayer was achieved by microwave hybrid heating method. The experiment results indicated that the volume expansion of interlayer was about 4.8% when the content of Al-Si was 24 wt % in the compositions. The interlayer ingredients were mullite, zirconia and alumina after sintering. The fibres were better joint with interlayer by microwave sintering than by traditional method.
