Summary

Graphites have been widely used as plasma facing materials in present Tokamak devices. In order to improve the properties of graphite, boron-carbon and silicon-carbon composites are now being seriously considered.

In this context, we have studied B4C-graphite composites. The technique is based on powder technology: powder mixing and densification by Hot Isostatic Pressing. The materials obtained are characterized regarding density, microstructure, thermal conductivity and mechanical strength. The characteristics of these materials are interesting.
