Influence of Temperature and Time Shifts on the Densification of Randomly Oriented Carbon/Carbon Composite
The efforts were made to improve the hot-pressing method of carbon/carbon (C/C) composite fabrication. The C/C composite was fabricated by hot-pressing the slurry moulded compact followed by carbonisation. The temperature and time shifts during hot-pressing were made in order to see their effect on the densification. Their effect was checked through visual inspection, density measurement, scanning electron microscope (SEM) analysis, and mechanical properties evaluation. The results showed that the temperature shift yielded in significant increase in the density after hot-pressing. Further, the density pick up instead of fall after carbonisation was noticed. The results further showed that the time shift too yielded in significant enhancement of density after hot-pressing and showed the pattern after carbonisation similar to the temperature shift. And also showed that the shifts of both temperature and time yielded in significant increase in density and moderate increase in mechanical properties.
