A new process for ceramic composites involves the growth of ceramic matrices through shaped preforms using directed oxidation reactions of molten metals. The preforms may consist of reinforcing fibers, whiskers, platelets, or particles, as needed to produce the desired properties in the finished component. This new technology is being developed by Lanxide Corporation and is being applied to gas turbine engine components by Du Pont Lanxide Composites Inc., a joint venture. The paper includes a description of the technology and a discussion of the status of its application to materials for gas turbine engine components.
