Transient Liquid Phase Bonding of 2D Fiber Reinforced Carbon-Carbon Composites
2D Fiber Reinforced carbon-carbon composites (C/C) was successfully bonded to itself with Ti-Ni-Ti sandwich interlayer by transient liquid phase bonding at 1050°C for 20~100 min under axial pressure of 0.1 MPa. The microstructures of joints were investigated and bonding strengths were examined, fracture surfaces were characterized by SEM and XRD. The results show that Ti-Ni eutectic liquid infiltrates into the interconnected capillaries of C/C through the open pores of the C/C boding surface. The presents of the breakpoints in joint alloy and the reaction between Ti and C are beneficial to the improvement of bonding strength. The shear strength of joint is as high as 37.4 MPa.
