Certain ceramals consisting of carbides bonded with a refractory metal have good strength properties at elevated temperatures, but are lacking in resistance to oxidation. In order for carbide ceramals of this type to find extensive use in jet-engine applications, there must first be some means of protecting them against rapid oxidation.
