Abstract

A method for the manufacture of a metal matrix composite by the SHS technique comprises a reaction between titanium and carbon or between titanium and borium, forming titanium carbide or titanium diboride. Tantalum and molybdenum or chromium are blended to the raw materials of the metal matrix composite to improve the resistance of the metal matrix composite to high temperatures and/or corrosion. The invention also relates to a metal matrix composite which contains elements at whose presence a protective oxide layer is formed on the surface of the metal matrix composite during the use.
