Many materials are produced by CVD or use CVD & CVI as a step in their manufacturing process. The examples given here are just a very few of the many available.

CVD coatings can be produced in a thickness ranging from nanometers to millimetres. Thick layers can be removed from their substrates to leave free-standing thin-walled shapes.

In the production of Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs), very thin protection layers are deposited on the preform fibres by CVI. These layers protect the preform from the subsequent densification processes which include CVI.
