An unique ceramic material produced through unidirectional solidification with eutectic composition of two-phase oxides was introduced recently. This composite material has the microstructure of coupled networks of two single crystals interpenetrate each other without grain boundaries. Depending on this microstructure this material, called Melt Growth Composite (MGC), can sustain its room temperature strength up to 1,700 (near its melting point) and offer strong oxidization-resistant ability, making its characteristics quite ideal for the gas turbine application. Our research project on MGC started in 2001 with the objective of establishing component technologies for MGC application to the high temperature components of the gas turbine engine. This paper outlines the results of our research so far at the early stage of the project.
