Fibre reinforced glasses and glass-ceramics have mechanical and thermal properties which make them suitable for use in gas turbines as alternatives to metals such as titanium and nickel alloys. Although initially developed nearly 20 years ago it is only recently that they have come to prominence as 'real' demonstration parts. This article presents a brief background to the development of glass matrix composites (GMC's) including the basic fabrication methods. Some of the key problems involved in manufacturing production quantities of GMC gas turbine components are described and the need for highly repeatable, and hence largely automated, processing methods highlighted.
