Reinforcement kind and ratios have significant effects on the metal matrix composite (MMC) materials. In this study, two different (B4C and SiC) reinforcement compounds and between 5 to 15 wt.% reinforcement ratios were used in Al-Si main matrix composite materials. Samples were produced via powder metallurgy (PM) method and were subjected to metallographic investigation with; SEM, EDS, FASTMAP, Optical Microscope analyzing methods. Microvickers measurements were carried out as HV1 load. The effects of B4C and SiC reinforcement in MMC were compared in details with these investigations.
