Summary

Coating of reinforcing agents with an appropriate material is effective to minimize reactions between the matrix and the environment during processing and subsequent use of the composite. In this study, characterization of interfacial chemistry of silicon carbide platelets was examined by acoustophoretic mobility analysis and X-ray photoeleclron spectroscopy (XPS). For interface chemistry control, the platelets were surface, cleaned and coated with ultrafine particles of alumina. Suitable parameters of suspensions were identified, the use of which can enhance the surface coating of alumina. Surface sensitive XPS was used to confirm the surface coating.
