This report covers the characterization of grade RVC graphite and describes process and blend variations which have been studied in the fabrication of substrate-type graphite since the publication of WADD Technical Report 61-72, Volume XIII. Present trials show that a forming pressure of 900 lbs./in.2, instead of the 1000 lbs./in.2 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.
