The method includes the additive manufacture of a green body from a powder-based refractory matrix material followed by densification via chemical vapor infiltration (CVI). The refractory matrix material can be a refractory ceramic (e.g., silicon carbide, zirconium carbide, or graphite) or a refractory metal (e.g., molybdenum or tungsten). In one embodiment, the matrix material is deposited according to a binder-jet printing process to produce a green body having a complex geometry. The CVI process increases its density, provides a hermetic seal, and yields an object with mechanical integrity. The residual binder content dissociates and is removed from the green body prior to the start of the CVI process as temperatures increase in the CVI reactor. The CVI process selective deposits a fully dense coating on all internal and external surfaces of the finished object.

  • Patent number: 11251024
    Abstract: Embodiments generally relate to a chamber component to be used in plasma processing chambers for semiconductor or display processing. In one embodiment, a chamber component includes a textured surface having a surface roughness ranging from about 150 microinches to about 450 microinches and a coating layer disposed on the textured surface. The coating layer may be a silicon layer having a purity ranging from about 90 weight percent to about 99 weight percent, a thickness ranging from about 50 microns to about 500 microns, and an electrical resistivity ranging from about 1 E-3 ohm*m to about 1 E3 ohm*m. The coating layer provides strong adhesion for materials deposited in the plasma processing chamber, which reduces the materials peeling from the chamber component. The coating layer also enables oxygen plasma cleaning for further reducing materials deposited on the chamber component and provides the protection of the textured surface located therebelow.
