Manufacturing and Properties of CMCs Containing Ti Filler with Improved Intra-Matrix Bond
Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) were manufactured via polymer infiltration and pyrolysis) PIP process. In order to improve the performance of CMCs as well as to accelerate the manufacturing process, micro-sized powders of Ti are employed as active fillers. To further increase mechanical properties of the CMC, a novel approach is made to strengthen intra-matrix bond by treating the CMC with titanium(IV)-diisopropylate after first PIP processing prior to each PIP cycle.
