Abstract

Ceramic/metal joints combine the high wear resistance of ceramics with the good ductility of metals to meet the conditions of use in harsh environments, avoiding the drawbacks of individual materials, and are used in a wide range of mechanical and heavy engineering applications such as aerospace, military instrumentation and nuclear energy. Due to the large difference between the density, specific heat capacity and coefficient of thermal expansion of ceramics and metals and other thermophysical properties, the residual thermal stresses generated during the connection will cause damage to the joints, which makes it difficult to realize the connection between ceramics and metals. Fusion brazing can alleviate the defects caused by the differences in thermophysical properties, and is an important method for the preparation of ceramic/metal composites. A molten liquid metal is used to wet the ceramic/metal surface and undergo a metallurgical reaction. Brazed connections are made at low temperatures, the base material does not melt during the brazing process, and there is minimal effect on the structure and properties of the base material. Therefore, hard brazing has been the main method of joining different materials for many years. This paper reviews the application of melt brazing in ceramic/metal joints in recent years and analyzes the structure, mechanical properties and constituent parts of the ceramic/metal interface.
