CoTi and ZrO2 nanopowders were mechanochemically synthesized from CoTiO3 and Zr powders according to the reaction (2CoTiO3 + 3Zr → 2CoTi + 3ZrO2). The milled powders were then consolidated by pulsed current-activated sintering within two minutes under an applied pressure of 80MPa. The average hardness and fracture toughness of the nanostructured 2CoTi-3ZrO2 composite sintered from high energy ball milled powder were 940 kg/mm2 and 6 MPa・m1/2, respectively. The mechanical properties of the composite were higher than those of monolithic CoTi or ZrO2, respectively. The microstructure and phases of the composite were investigated using FE-SEM and XRD.
