The study reports development of sic nanoparticles reinforced aluminum A380 matrix nanocomposites using a powder metallurgy and were fabricated by hot-pressing technique in vacuum at 510 °C. 0.25, 0.5, 1 and 1.5 wt-% of sic nanoparticles are used for the synthesis of nanocomposites. Testing and analysis of fabricated composites revealed improved metallurgy, mechanical properties and wear behavior. Grain refinement action caused by sic nanoparticles, high hardness and high wear resistance is reasoned for these improvements. The microstructures are analyzed through a scanning electron microscope and x-ray diffraction. The wear resistance of resultant composites is reported at a higher side, decreasing friction coefficient. Moreover, incorporation of A380 nanocomposite reinforced with sic nanoparticles significantly reduced the wear rate and the friction coefficient in comparison with the AlA380 matrix composites.
