Protective Coatings for Carbon-Carbon Composites
Carbon-carbon is a unique composite material in which a nonstructural carbonaceous matrix is reinforced by carbon fibers to create a heat-resistant structural material that finds application in the aerospace and defense industries. This article provides a detailed account of the fundamentals of protecting carbon-carbon composites and explains the various coating deposition techniques, namely, pack cementation, chemical vapor deposition, and slurry coatings. It includes information on the practical limitations of coatings for the carbon-carbon composites.
