This article focus on the study of Transition or Back wall Temperature behavior in PAN based composite materials with and without Silicon Carbide filler was investigated. PAN fabric is one of the most useful reinforcement materials in the composites, its major use being the manufacture of components in aerospace, automotive and missile technology. In this study, PAN carbon fabric laminates were prepared by Hand lay-up technique with and without Silicon Carbide filler. The experimental work was done on studying the Transition or Back wall Temperature characterization and ablative studies through Oxy-acetylene testing. The study results revealed that it exhibits the better thermal protection shield in PAN based Silicon Carbide filler laminate compared without adding filler material. However, the ablation rate study results were exhibits better erosion rate of CP laminate with Sic filler for thermal insulation.
