The effect of addition of submicrometer-sized B4C (5,10 and 15 wt%) on microstructure, phase composition, hardness, fracture toughness, scratch resistance, wear resistance, and thermal behavior of hot-pressed ZrB2-B4C composites is reported. ZrB2-B4C (10 wt%) composite has V-H1 of 20.81 GPa and fracture toughness of 3.93 at 1kgf, scratch resistance coefficient of 0.40, wear resistance coefficient of 0.01, and ware rate of 0.49x10(-3)mm(3)/Nm at 10N. Crack deflection by homogeneously dispersed submicrometer-sized B4C in ZrB2 matrix can improve the mechanical and tribological properties. Thermal conductivity of ZrB2-B4C composites varied from 70.13 to 45.30W/mK between 100 degrees C and 1000 degrees C which is encouraging for making ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC) component.
