The paper studies the structurization of titanium carbide ceramics with additions of synthesized superfine SiC–Fe2O3 powder composites as master alloys under pressureless sintering. The superfine master alloy particles promoted a homogeneous structure in TiC0.7N0.3 titanium carbonitride and hardening of the resultant materials. The mechanical properties of the materials were examined.
