The microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti3SiC2–SiC nanocomposite fabricated by in situ hot pressing (HP) synthesis process were studied. The results show that dense Ti3SiC2–SiC composite contained minor TiSi2 obtained by hot sintering at 1350°C for 1 h. The average grain size of Ti3SiC2 was 4 𝜇m in length, and the size of SiC grains is about 100 nm. With its fine microstructure, the Ti3SiC2–SiC nanocomposite shows good mechanical properties.
