  • Patent number: 4869943
    Abstract: Very tough composites of silicon carbide fibers in silicon nitride matrices, especially reaction bonded silicon nitride matrices, can be made by precoating the fibers with pyrolytic carbon and controlling the nitridation or other process which forms the silicon nitride matrix so that a thickness of at least 5 nanometers of carbon remains in the composite after it is formed. Failure of such composites is non-catastrophic.
