In this work the structure and properties of composite rollers with surface layer made of hard alloy were studied. The rollers were made by the powder metallurgy method with sintering during pressing and the presence of a certain liquid phase during sintering (semi-liquid sintering). WC-Co and TiC-Ni-Fe materials were used as hard alloys. Iron-carbon and iron-nickel materials were used as soft base. All of the composite layers were formed in one process. The structure of base materials and border layer of these composites were studied. Investigations of thermocycling sustainability of these composite samples were carried out.
