Abstract:

THE OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE SUCCESSFUL FABRICATION AND DENSIFICATION OF CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES FORMED BY INJECTION MOLDING. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS OBJECTIVE, A DESIGNED TEST MATRIX WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL SYSTEMATICALLY INVESTIGATE THE KEY INJECTION MOLDING AND DEBINDING PARAMETERS SUCH AS BINDER COMPOSITION, SOLIDS RATIO, MOLDING CONDITIONS, DEBINDING CONDITIONS, ETC. CERAMATEC'S LOWAND HIGH-PRESSURE INJECTION MOLDERS WILL BE USED DURING THE PROJECT. THE COMPOSITE SYSTEM INITIALLY INVESTIGATED DURING PHASE I WILL BE AN SIC WHISKER-AL(2)O(3) MATRIX COMPOSITE DEVELOPED AT CERAMATEC THAT CAN BE PRESSURELESS SINTERED TO GREATER THAN 95% TD. THE RESULTS OF THIS PHASE I WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF INJECTION MOLDING CERAMIC MATRIX COMPOSITES AND IDENTIFY THE KEY PARAMETERS FOR FURTHER DEVELOPMENT AND OPTIMIZATION IN PHASE II.
