Summary

A new ceramic fiber called Nextel 480 has been introduced by 3M. This paper describes this new fiber and highlights fiber mechanical properties measured at room temperature before and after exposure up to 1400°C in air, vacuum and hydrogen. Tensile strength, tensile modulus, and creep results at test temperatures up to 1300°C are discussed along with the measurement techniques. The results suggest these new fibers are useful for reinforcing some ceramic matrices.
