Abstract : A ceramic material characterized by a high degree of resistance to failure by thermal fracture which comprises a composite of a refractory oxide and flaked boron nitride. The boron nitride flakes are incorporated into a refractory oxide matrix as an inert, nonreactive, uniform dispersed phase in proportions sufficient to provide the oxide composite with an increased resistance to thermal shock.
