Development of Co-Continuous Ceramic Composite Materials for Specific Applications 940850

The process of producing co-continuous ceramic composite material has been investigated in order to provide a greater understanding of the formation mechanism and hence evaluate the viability of commercial applications for these exciting new materials. The ease of manufacture for components combined with the low production cost hold great promise for the production of brake rotors, brake calipers, piston crowns, cylinder liners, gears and turbine compressors.
Practical issues such as bonding to this material, together with the machinability have been addressed, our findings are presented in this paper.
