Summary

Sol-gel processing is used to produce coatings of alumina on SiC and silicate fibers. Coating procedures and problems encountered during drying and firing are discussed. The resulting samples are characterized by scanning electron microscopy. This appears to be a promising method for fabricating ceramic-ceramic composites.
