Summary

A joining technique, developed from a SiC reaction forming approach, has been used to join reaction-bonded silicon carbide (Carborundum's Cerastar RB-SiC). These reaction formed joints consist of silicon carbide and silicon phases. The room and high temperature flexural strengths of thin (< 50–55 m̈m) reaction formed joints have been found to be at least equal to that of the bulk materials since the flexure bars fracture away from the joint regions. This also was found to be the case for these thin joints up to 1350 °C in air.
