Development of heat-resistant composit materials
1997 - 1999
The application temperature limit of organic polymer materials is around 500 °C. That of silicon materials is higher than 1,000 °C, but they are brittle. Fiber-reinforced composite materials consisting of phenol resin have been used for rocket nozzles, and the ablator of recoverable capsules, but the performance of these materials is not satisfactory. To take advantage in heat resistance and light-weight of organic polymer materials containing silicon, we develops new heat-resistant materials excellent in filming characteristic by combining heat-resistant polymer high in toughness, such as polyimide.
