MoSi2-based composites are promising structural materials for high-temperature applications. MoxW1−xSi2 (x = 1, 0.9, 0.8, and 0.7) powders were successfully synthesized by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. These powders were used to fabricate heating elements, which were then subjected to a post-annealing process to improve the structural quality. To determine the influence of the W content (0–30 mol%) on the characteristics of MoxW1−xSi2 composites, the surface morphologies, densities, and bending strengths of the MoxW1−xSi2 heating elements were investigated. Moreover, to validate the durability of the MoxW1−xSi2 heating elements, an accelerated degradation test (ADT) was conducted at temperatures up to 1700°C (heating rate = 5°C/min). The MoxW1−xSi2 heating element with 30 mol% of W exhibited a high density, a high bending strength, and superior durability after the ADT test. In contrast, the MoxW1−xSi2 heating element with 0 mol% of W showed inferior durability owing to the formation of bubbles at the MoxW1−xSi2 /SiO2 interface. Thus, the addition of W enhances the reliability and durability of MoxW1−xSi2 composites as heating elements.
