Abstract : A process has been developed which is capable of depositing silicon carbide on a heated substrate by means of liquid film-boiling on the submerged hot object. The film-boiling process, when adapted to a continuously moving filament, will build a 1-mil diameter substrate up to 4.5 mils with a silicon carbide coating in one minute of plating time. The process produces a layered concentric deposit. (Author)
