Abstract : A review of previous work on protective coatings for graphite, a description of several basic factors controlling the oxidation protection of graphite, and a review of existing information on the diffusion of oxygen and carbon through coating materials, the volatility, the chemical stability, and the mechanical compatibility of coating materials is presented. It is concluded that a considerable amount of research is needed to evaluate coating materials for the protection of graphite from oxidation at temperatures of 2000C and higher.
