The work is devoted to the development of a solid-phase technology for obtaining high-temperature layered composites from Nballoys. The following are presented: one of the options for the formation of the initial multilayer package and its diffusion welding (1), the microstructure of the obtained composites (2) and the results of testing composites (3) for strength at room temperature and temperatures up to 1350°C, taking into account the structure anisotropy, crack resistance and tests for creep with two options for processing the obtained experimental data.
