Properties of $B_4C/Al$ cermets were studied as a function of atmosphere during infiltration and post-heat treatment. The cermet A(infiltrated at $1100{circ}C$/10 min under vacuum) had 19.4 wt% of Al but the cermet B(infiltratd at $1080{circ}C$/10 min under a flowing argon) showed 14.4 wt% of Al. It indicated that the reaction between $B_4C$ and Al underwent slower under vacuum than under a flowing argon. The cermet B as infiltrated showed the density of 2.65 $g/cm^3$, the MOR of 503 MPa and the Young's Modulus of 237 GPa, but the post-heat treatment at $900{circ}C$ for 8h under a flowing Ar gave rise to the cermet with the density of 2.65 $g/cm^3$, the MOR of 296 MPa, the Young's Modulus of 300 GPa. The cermet B showed better properties than the cermet A. Changes in compositions of the cermets by the post-heat treatment were observed qualitatively by XRD and SEM, the amount of Al was determined by analysis of its DSC curve.
Key words: $B_4C/Al$ cermet, Atmosphere of infiltration, MOR, Young's modulus, Post-heat treatment
