This paper describes a new family of tough, continuous-fiber-reinforced ceramic composites (CFCCs) that overcomes the brittleness normally associated with ceramics. Designers have been seekingahigher-temperature, corrosion-resistant material to enable the fabrication of more-efficient and more-durable components of industrial equipment. Scientists and engineers responded with CFCCs. This family of materials overcomes the brittleness of traditional ceramics and allows designs that go beyond the limits of metals. CFCCs are fabricated by filament winding or mandrel wrapping (for tubular shapes) or layups onto forms for complex shapes. These versatile materials are being evaluated as hot-gas filters, heat-exchanger tubes, immersion tubes for melting aluminum, and many other uses in hostile environments. CFCCs have successfully survived in turbine engine combustors, incinerators, and furnaces and have withstood exposure to coal ash and commonly encountered industrial chemicals. CFCCs give designers a new high-temperature, corrosion-resistant, durable material. Key words: ceramic, aluminum oxide, alumina, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, fibers, chemicals, turbine engines, high temperature, coal ash, corrosion resistance, immersion tubes, heat exchangers, turbine engines, particle separators, and pipe hangers.
