Processing of metals through the application of high-pressure torsion (HPT) provides the potential for achieving exceptional grain refinement in bulk metals. Because of the introduction of an intense plastic strain during processing, HPT has also been applied for the consolidation of metallic powders and bonding of machining chips. However, there are very limited reports examining the validity of HPT for synthesis of bulk hybrid metal from simple commercial metals. This study demonstrates the formation of an Al-Mg hybrid system in the form of an intermetallic-based metal matrix nanocomposite by processing two commercial metal disks of Al-1050 and ZK 60 magnesium alloys through HPT.
