Abstract
A high-temperature composite material and application method have been developed to rapidly repair hot zone LO coatings. The composite material includes RAM filler that has been encapsulated with a durable, oxidation resistant coating. The filler is contained in a silicon oxy-carbide matrix that is rapidly cured, adherent and capable of withstanding thermal and mechanical shock. The matrix represents a significant advance over conventional materials that are based on older, castable refractory technology. Phase II tasks will optimize filler encapsulation, matrix properties and application methods.
