Strength, Young's modulus and fracture toughness data in the temperature range 30–1400°C are presented for reaction-bonded silicon nitride and its particulate composites with SiC (5–20 vol.%), BN (10 vol.%) and TiC (5 vol.%). The composites of Si3N4 with SiC showed the best mechanical properties of the three types of composites. The toughening mechanism and interdependence of various mechanical properties for these composites are discussed.
