Continuous Binder-Powder Coating for the Production of Ti/SiC/C Composites
Continuous Binder-Powder Coating (CBPC) is a new fabrication route for the titanium metal matrix composites reinforced with continuous SiC filaments. Based on powder-cloth process, this alternative fabrication route is characterised, analysed and application viability is discussed considering the other related routes. In addition, effects of the pressure and temperature on the Ti/SiC/C composites were considered for matrix consolidation. Results have shown that the titanium matrix composites processed by Continuous Binder-Powder Coating present, simultaneously, good matrix densification, consolidation and also a weak interaction between matrix and fibers, when the hot pressing is performed under 150 MPa at temperature below β-transus. Most important characteristics of the CBPC process and its application viability are reported, in this paper.
