The composition, microstructures and properties of the Ti(CN) based cermets have been characterized by using SEM/BSE and energy spectrometer. Results shows that the carbon content of the cermets through N2 and Ar sintering was lower by 0.5% than vacuum sintering and the nitrogen content of the cermets through N2 sintering was higher by 20~25% than the Ar and vacuum atmosphere sintering. When sintered in Ar or N2, the balance between the carbon and nitrogen in the cermets was broken to form a surface defects, which would result in poor properties. The structure of vacuum sintering is more uniform and the properties are better.
