Fiber Tech

FFF can fabricate a wide range of materials due to inherent LCVD process flexibility, drawing upon the broad availability of CVD precursor gases to deposit different compositions.  This CVD database is extensive and nearly 50 years old.  FFF has already demonstrated silicon carbide (SiC), boron (B), tungsten carbide (WC), boron carbide (BxC), and carbon in fiber form, and boron nitride (BN), carbon (C), and SiC as coatings on the fibers.

A range of material properties have been investigated and evaluated for silicon carbide fibers and boron nitride coating, as shown in the following sections:
