Strain Induced Melt Activated (SIMA) method is one of the most commonly used techniques for producing near-net-shape parts. The alloy is heated to liquid+solid region and then forged into the die cavity. In this way, homogeneously distributed spherical structure can be obtained. There are no works in the literature on the use of SIMA to produce p/MMC. A cast alloy (A380) and a wrought alloy (A6063) was selected. There different SiC particle size were sieved to be in the range of 50-120 m. The highest wettability was obtained in 6063 however there was almost no binding in A380. Impact and wear tests were carried to characterise the properties of SiC p/MMC.
