Max phase ceramics and methods for producing the same

A method for producing a MAX phase material with general formulation Mn+1AXn-y is disclosed. Thereby M is a transition metal, A is an A-group element and X is carbon (C) and/or nitrogen (N), where the M, A and X position can be occupied by more than 1 element with n being in the range 1 to 3, y being within the range -0.5 to 0.5. The method comprises providing a starting powder said starting powder comprising least one starting hydride powder, compacting the starting powder and producing the MAX phase material by using a pressure assisted sintering technique. Preferably Zr, Hf, Ti, Nb and Ta are used for M and Si, Sn, Pb, Bi and Al for A.
