Summary

Ceramic composites were prepared by infiltration of conventional cleaning paper with low viscous preceramic polymer/filler suspensions. Subsequently the infiltrated papers were laminated by hot pressing and converted into ceramic composites by filler controlled reaction pyrolysis at temperatures up to 1450°C in argon atmosphere. Poly(methylsiloxane) was used as the preceramic polymer and SiC and Si/Al powders as inert and reactive filler, respectively. During infiltration and pyrolysis the ceramic phase formation and microstructure evolution in the laminates were monitored by XRD, TGA, DTA and SEM/EDX measurements. The resulting ceramic composites show low density, adjustable porosity and high temperature stability together with non-catastrophic fracture behavior.
