Research Institution

The principal objective of the interface coating research has been to provide high strength and high strain to failure in a ceramic composite. As the applications have gain acceptance, the focus has changed to affordability. There are three high cost area in a ceramic composite. They are: 1.The cost of the fiber, 2. The cost of the interface coating, and 3. The cost of the compositing operations.. This proposal addresses the cost of the interface coating. The approach is to increase the coating rate significantly. A high coating rate will result in the reduction in the cost of the coating and also the capital cost required to supply the required production requirements. The proposed work will be demonstrated by modifying the Synterials existing interface coating reactor. From this work, the projected cost factors will be determined. When complete, the work will be transferred to the currently planned production facility.
