A new concept of Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC), mainly based on the use of a self–sealing technology for matrix and the use of a multilayer woven reinforcement, has been developed by Snecma for achieving high performance levels targeted by future jet engines. The driving force for this development has been to increase both lifetime and temperature capability of previous C/SiC and SiC/SiC materials using a monolithic SiC Chemical Vapor Infiltration (CVI) matrix and finishing treatment against oxidation. The first material, which has been developed with this new approach, is CERASEP® A410, using Hi-Nicalon™ fibers from Nippon Carbon. It has been submitted to a comprehensive characterization in order to determine thermo-mechanical properties and to evaluate lifetime duration, using fatigue and creep testing. Further material development is investigating the use of carbon fiber for economical objectives. The combination of such fibers with the new self-sealing matrix is providing promising results for long duration application at high temperature. Such results are permitted by the very high potential of the new matrix.
