In order to improve the mechanical properties of Ti3AlC2, near-fully dense Ti3AlC2/TiB2 composites were synthesized using Ti, Al, graphite, and B4C powders as the initial materials. Compared with monolithic Ti3AlC2, the composites exhibit a much higher strength (for the compressive strength, from initial 723 MPa to maximal 2205 MPa; for flexural strength, from initial 340 MPa to maximal 861 MPa), and the strengthening effect can be held at least up to 1100°C. Moreover, besides the enhancement of the elastic modulus and hardness of Ti3AlC2, the introduction of a TiB2 phase makes a positive contribution to its electrical conductivity.
