Keywords:High-melting-point borides, High-temperature oxidation, Sintering

High-melting-point borides are expected to be applied to nuclear energy because of their excellent neutron shielding performance. This study evaluates the effect of molten Si impregnation treatment on high-temperature oxidation behavior of sintered TiB2 and TiB2-based composites.
