The use of polymeric precursors to produce ceramics is generating considerable interest . Owing to distinct advantages in processability, polymeric precursors have found applications in many areas such as ceramic fibers, foams and coatings. Ceramic coatings, in particular, are of immediate value in industry as a means of providing wear and corrosion resistance for articles used in adverse environments. The coating of engineering parts with ceramics using polymeric precursors is a relatively easy, quick and low-cost process compared with other processing methods such as chemical vapor deposition and plasma-coating.
The authors wish to thank DSO National Laboratories in Singapore for partial support of thiswork via a M.Sc. scholarship for Miss P. P. Loh. We also thank the Government of Pakistan for supporting the Ph.D. studies on polymeric precursors carried out by Mr. Nangrejo.
