The coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of a hot pressed Ta16W18O94 which was produced from Ta2O5 and WO3 powders was found to be −1.52×10−6 K−1 in the temperature range 180–330 K. Using the Ta16W18O94 and Super Invar powders, 50:50 volume percent metal-ceramic composites were made by the powder metallurgy techniques. When the mixture of constituent powders was hot pressed at 1123 K for 10 minutes, a CTE of 1.1 × 10−6 K−1 was obtained in the temperature range 140–420 K.
