Oxidation Protective Glass-Ceramic Coating for SiC Fibre Reinforced Glass Matrix Composites

A protective coating for SiC fiber reinforced borosilicate glass-matrix composites based on zinc borosilicate (ZBS) glass-ceramic was developed. The coating was deposited on the composite surfaces by a simple and cost-effective method, based on slurry dipping followed by a densification and crystallisation stage carried out at optimised temperature and holding time. The coatings were shown to be able to withstand temperatures of up to 700 °C without softening and without exhibiting microcracking.
