Abstract: The technique of solid-state making of a laminate composite based on niobium with boride-silicide strengthening is presented. The technique consists in diffusion welding of a package of niobium foils covered with a suspension of silicon and boron powders in vacuum under pressure. The research of the micro-structure has determined that the composite represents the alternation of the layers of boron solid solution in niobium and the layers of intermetallic compounds. The strength testing in the temperature range 20–1500°C has shown quite acceptable strength under satisfactory fracture toughness at room temperature. The combination of ductile layers of solid solutions and high-strength brittle layers of intermetallic compounds assures the necessary mechanical characteristics.
