A WSi2-SiC nanocomposite coating was formed by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) of Si on the W-carbide layers. The nanocomposite coating consisted of the equiaxed WSi2 grains with the average grain size of 88-153 nm. The β-SiC particles with an average size of 37-65 nm were mostly located at the grain boundaries of WSi2.
