Composites based on the cubic boron nitride (c- BN) have recently attracted increasing interest due to the possibility of the synthesis of materials with unique properties such as super-hardness, combined high hardness and low friction, high corrosion resistance, attractive thermal and electrical properties. There is an increasing number of composites based on the c- BN matrix with addition of Ti compounds such as TiC, Ti3SiC2, TiN. In order to understand the origin of the exceptional properties of these materials it is necessary to have a good comprehension of the multiphase composition and microstructure of these materials. The lack of this knowledge is result of difficulties in characterization of the multiphase materials using conventional methods.
