Ni/TiC composites have been produced using laser induced self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. The chemical composition and microstructure were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscope. The sintered density and mechanical properties such as bending strength and micro-hardness were also measured. The results showed that the synthesized products were consisted of TiC and Ni phases, which indicated that the TiC was synthesized by the in-situ reaction. Moreover, the results revealed that the sintered density increased and the micro-hardness and bending strength of the synthesized products gradually decreased with the increasing of Ni contents.
