Composites Fabrication



“Chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) is a variant on Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). CVD implies deposition onto a surface, whereas CVI implies deposition within a body.  Chemical vapor infiltration is widely used as a means of fabricating Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) such as alumina/alumina (alumina fiber reinforced alumina), in which a chemical vapor consisting of AlCl3-H2-CO2 is deposited onto porous alumina fibers or preforms, or SiC/SiC (silicon carbide fiber reinforced silicon carbide).  The CVI-process was designed and first experimented by Professor Roger Naslain from the University of Bordeaux 1 on carbon fiber reinforced SiC composites for aerospace applications.” (Wikipedia, Chemical Vapor Infilration, 7/26/2012)
