In the present investigation, an Al-A380 metal matrix nanocomposite reinforced with sic nanoparticles (0, 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 1.5 wt.%) was fabricated by powder metallurgy. Microstructural evaluation and mechanical properties of specimens were studied by Field Emission-Scanning Electron Microscopy, X-ray Diffraction and hardness. Several factors that affect uniform distribution of reinforcing nanoparticles were investigated. After ball milling and sintering, a nanocomposite with a uniform distribution of nanoparticles was produced. It was shown that the hardness of the nanocomposite enhanced with the increasing amount of sic nanoparticles up to 0.5% wt.%. Results showed a considerable change in morphology after adding sic nanoparticles leading to an improvement in strength of the nanocomposite. The AlA380%-0.5 wt.% sic nanocomposite sample represents the optimum properties and microstructure in samples.
