This paper describes the manufacture of an oxidation protection layer for reticulated silicon carbide foams. The produced foams are investigated by light microscopy, XRD and electrical measurements. The protection efficiency is estimated by weight change, image analysis and electrical resistance. The results indicate a feasible way to protect SiC foams against oxidation.
