The paper examines the high-pressure sintering of nanograined ceramic polycrystals based on TiN-TiB2 and TiC0.5N0.5 refractory compounds. Using the optimum pressure (up to 4 GPa) allows keeping the initial nanostate (TiN-TiB2 and TiC0.5N0.5) and obtaining high-density ceramics with enhanced mechanical properties. An x-ray structural analysis is used to examine how the TiN-TiB2 and TiC0.5N0,5 crystalline structure evolves during temperature-pressure treatment, which produces new ceramic materials. Based on the properties of the polycrystalline materials obtained, the temperature-time mode for the consolidation of initial nanopowders is determined to ensure favorable parameters of sintered nanograined ceramics.
