The paper proposed a method to improve the anti-oxidation performance of carbon fibers (CF) at high temperature environment by coating silicon dioxide (SiO2) and silicon carbide (SiC). The modified sol-gel method had been used to ensure the proper interface between fibers and coating. We used polydimethylsiloxane and ethyl orthosilicate to make stable emulsion to uniformly disperse SiC nanoparticles. The modified SiO2/SiC coating had been coated on CF successfully. Compared with the untreated CF, the coated fibers started to be oxidized around 900 °C and the residual weight was 57% at 1400 °C. The oxidation mechanism had been discussed. The structure of SiC/SiO2 coated CF had been characterized by scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction analysis. Thermal gravimetric analysis was used to test the anti-oxidation ability of CF with different coatings. View Full-Text
