MASVI project aims to produce and develop a prototype of a ceramic panel resistant to high temperatures and realized by the combination of different processes.



In particular, Pyrolysis of Polymeric Materials (PIP) coupled with compaction in autoclave (useful to reduce the existing porosity) in order to provide a solid support for the following processes of infiltration of the matrix by means of vapors (CVI, ie Chemical Vapour Infiltration) and final sealing of the part by means of deposition of a surface coating through PVD (Pressure Vapour Deposition) technique.

The process allows to realize reinforced ceramic elements capable, in the case of SiC-SiC materials (SiC matrix and SiC fiber-reinforcement) to withstand operational temperature of the order of 1600 °C.
