    Abstract:

    In this paper, SiC particle reinforced Al based metal matrix composites were manufactured by powder metallurgy. Average particle sizes of Al matrix were 33 μm, 45 μm and 61 μm while dimension of SiC reinforcement were 33 μm and 61 μm. Prepared metal matrix composite specimens have 3%, 6% and 10% reinforcement. Prepared composites were sintered at 600oC. Specimens were then separated into three groups such as: not rolled after sintering, rolled after sintering, first sintered then heated to 500o C before rolling operation. After rolling of metal matrix composites, hardness and microstructure differences examined in hand. A description of the phenomena involved clustering of particles, particles cracking, interfacial failure associated with weak matrix-reinforcement bonding was presented. The effect of particle size, particle percent and rolling temperature on microstructure and hardness differences were investigated.
