Ceramic-Metal Composite such as NiWC, CoWC are among advanced technology materials that have outstanding mechanical and physical properties for high temperature applications. Especially low density and high hardness properties stand out in such ceramic-metal composite. The microstructure, mechanical properties of %60Ni, %20Co and %20WC powders have been sintered by using tube furnace at 1,000–1,100–1,200–1,300–1,400 °C temperature. Mecahnical proporties and metalograhphic analysis were investigated after sintering. NiCo phases observed after metallographic analaysis. XRD, SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope)results showed us best microhardness of composites 174.16 HV, 8,563 g cm-3 density were obtained at 1,400 °C sintering tempareture.
