Abstract
Abstract To improve the long-term anti-oxidation performance of carbon/carbon (C/C) composites at high temperature, La2O3-modified ZrB2-SiC (ZSL) coating was prepared on SiC-coated C/C composites by pack cementation. The results indicated that significant improvement was achieved on the oxidation resistance of ZSL coated specimens compared with ZrB2-SiC (ZS) coating for SiC-coated C/C composites at 1500 °C and 1600 °C. The mass loss of the ZSL coated specimen was merely 0.6% after a static oxidation test at 1500 °C for 550 h, while that of the ZS coated specimen was 1.89% at the same condition. And the ZSL coating can also protect C/C composites from oxidation for 107 h at 1600 °C with the mass loss of 0.92%. Moreover, the mass gain of ZSL coated specimen was 0.35% when it subjected to the thermal shock between 1500 °C and room temperature for 50 times. The excellent protection ability against oxidation and thermal shock could be attributed to the synergetic effects of generated La-Si-O compound glassy layer and thermally stable phase ZrSiO4.

Abstract Carbon/carbon (C/C) composites are considered as one of the most promising materials in structural applications owing to their excellent mechanical properties at high temperature. However, C/C composites are susceptible to high-temperature oxidation. Matrix modification and coating technology with ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) have proved to be highly effective to improve the oxidation and ablation resistance of C/C composites. In this paper, recent advances in oxidation and a...

Abstract To investigate the effect of preparation methods on the La-Mo-Si (LMS) coatings, we developed a new LMS coating system using pack cementation (PC) and supersonic atmospheric plasma spraying (SAPS). Microstructure analysis showed that the SAPS-LMS coating possessed a higher porosity than that of the PC-LMS coating. Higher porosity can provide more channels to the oxidative and corrosive gasses to permeate the SAPS-LMS ceramic top-coat. After static oxidation for 150 h under 1773 K, the m...

Abstract Long time oxidation protection at ultra-high temperatures or ablation protection has been a choke point for C/C composites. In this study, long time ablation protection of different-La2O3-content (5–30 vol.%) modified ZrC coating for SiC-coated carbon/carbon (C/C) composites was investigated. Results showed that ZrC coating with 15 vol.% La2O3 had good ablation resistance and could protect C/C composites for at least 700 s at 2160 °C. A high-thermal-stability and low-oxygen-diffusivity ...

Abstract Rapid oxidation testing for monolithic ZrB 2 and ZrB 2 –SiC binary composites with different SiC contents (0–30 vol%) was performed using an electric heating system above 2000 °C. The system used in this study achieved the high heating rate of 250 °C/s. The experimental results showed that the morphologies of the oxidized specimens depended strongly on the SiC content. The formation mechanism of SiC-depleted layers beneath the surface scale above 2000 °C differed completely from that be...

Abstract La-doped Mo-Si (LMS) ceramic coatings were deposited on SiC-coated carbon/carbon (C/C) composites using plasma spraying at different spraying powers. The effect of spraying power on the microstructures and properties of LMS coatings was investigated. The feedstock particles were sufficiently melted and LMS coatings became more and more compact with the increase of spraying power. Especially at the power of 55 kW, a denser layer of LMS coating was obtained, which has a remarkable oxidati...

Abstract The effects of SiC on microstructure and properties of plasma sprayed ZrB2-ZrC composite coating were investigated. Plasma sprayed ZrB2-ZrC and ZrB2-ZrC-SiC composite coatings were prepared and compared. The addition of SiC could improve the density of the ZrB2-ZrC-SiC coating that lead to better mechanical properties. The reason was that SiC improved the melting state of powder feedstocks during plasma spraying process and refined grains in ZrB2-ZrC-SiC composite coating.
