The characterization of grade RVC graphite and the process and blend variations which were studied in the fabrication of substrate-type graphite are described. Present trials show that a forming pressure of 900 lbs.sq. in., instead of the 1000 lbs. sq. in. as used previously, would increase the yield of grade RVC and not significantly change the properties of the material. Furthermore, these trials show that various other blends will also produce a substrate graphite suitable for silicon carbide coating. Author
