The influence of carbon nanotubes on the thermal shock resistance of the multiwall carbon nanotube reinforced silicon nitride composites has been investigated. Silicon nitride based composites with different amount (1 or 3 wt.%) of carbon nanotubes have been prepared by hot isostatic pressing. The adition of 1 wt.% CNTs enhanced the thermal shock resistance of the composite, however, CNT content increase up to 3 wt.% reduced its thermal shock resistance.
