The modern requirements for lightweight products force one to make constructional materials with brand new properties. One such group of materials that meets these demands are fiber-reinforced metal-matrix composites. A combination of light and good deformable aluminum with a strong fiber allows obtaining high strength, ductility and corrosion resistance in a single product. In the present article the application of energy-efficient technology of twin-roll casting for production of flat aluminum-matrix composites reinforced with carbon and glass fiber is observed. The corresponding experimental study on the manufacturing of thin strips of pure aluminum reinforced with carbon and glass fiber rovings was carried out using a 370 mm roll diameter labor twin-roll caster. The obtained flat products of 3…5 mm thickness were analyzed by means of mechanical tests and electron microscopy. The results have shown a great potential of the twin-roll casting for production of high-strength fiber-reinforced aluminum strips.
