Ceramic Matrix Composite CoorsTek has developed a composite ceramic material using silicon carbide (SiC) and short carbon fibers. Similar to adding straw to clay in adobe bricks, the use of carbon fibers allows the ceramic composite to overcome ceramic’s brittleness and inducing toughness while maintaining the benefits of the individual materials.
Traditionally, pump manufacturers used SiC (silicon carbide) for bushings and bearings in these pumps because of its high hardness and ability to withstand abrasive wear in solid media. Since the early 1980s, OEM pump manufacturers have been using sintered SiC bearings for the stationary and rotating components of tubular casing pumps.
Silicon carbide fiber–reinforced ceramic matrix composites (SiC-CMCs) are being developed as a candidate for toughened thermostructural materials (). However, at present, no SiC-CMCs can withstand actual long use at high temperatures (>1500°C) in air, because of the problems of heat resistance or oxidation resistance or both of the fiber and interphase ( 2 , 3 ).
Ceramic matrix composites (CMC) are termed as composite materials that comprise ceramic fibers entrenched in a ceramic matrix. The factors that are playing a major role in the growth of ceramic matrix composites market are the rising concern towards environment and strict pollution control policy, the high strength and lightweight, and the rising demand from end-users to create durable structures.
2.3. Microstructural and morphological characterization After the creation of Aluminium-silicon carbide composite, and before minuscule observation, samples were observed under scanning electron microscope (SEM) (JEOL, Model JSM 6390LV, Japan) to study the morphology and to assess the filler dispersion and compatibility between the ceramic filler and metal matrix and moreover also to look at
Silicon carbide fiber is a kind of high-performance ceramic material with carbon and silicon as the main components. Morphologically, it is divided into whisker and continuous silicon carbide fiber, and it has the advantages of high-temperature oxidation resistance, high hardness, high strength, high thermal stability, corrosion resistance, and low density.
Silicon carbide (SiC) generated the highest revenue in the ceramic matrix composites market in 2015, on the basis of product type. This is attributed to the large-scale usage of SiC-based matrices in numerous end-use industries, including aerospace, defense, and electronics.
