Fibre handling expertise helps develop novel prototype

IMG 1919A prototype machine developed as part of the UK-based Continuous Interface Coating for Silicon Carbide (CICSiC) composites project enables the mechanical properties of silicon carbide (SiC) in ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) to be more closely specified to enhance aerospace applications.

The project brought together the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Archer Technicoat, TISICS Metal Composites and Cygnet Texkimp to focus on the manufacturing routes for SiC CMCs as a material of interest for high-temperature applications of up to 2000°C in sectors such as aerospace, space and nuclear.
