Abstract: Stable material properties against large and frequent temperature variations are strongly desired in modern industry. Here we report the combination of low thermal expansion, high thermal conductivity and good mechanical properties in Hf0.87Ta0.13Fe2Cux, all of which are well retained from ambient down to cryogenic temperatures. Cu partially substitutes for Hf Ta atoms, causing a continuous suppression of negative thermal expansion. For x ≥ 1.25 the Cu precipitates remarkably improves the overall thermal conductivity and compressive strength of the compounds. The excellent comprehensive performance covering such a broad temperature window suggests the wide applications of current composites, for example in cryogenic engineering.
