This paper considers the technique of obtaining boride-containing nanostructured composite materials by the method of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS). It is shown that the selection of regimes and conditions of reactions allows receiving materials on the basis of titanium and chromium borides as well as aluminum oxide with finely dispersed structure and high mechanical properties.
