Aluminium-based composite reinforced with Cu base amorphous alloy dispersed composite was prepared by means of high pressure torsion between a powder mix of aluminium and amorphous Cu base alloy. The X-ray diffraction pattern of powdered and consolidated composites shows the aluminium phase while the thermal stability of the amorphous alloy was studied with the aid of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The microstructural feature of the composite through scanning electron microscope reveals the well-distributed reinforcements in the host aluminium matrix. The hardness measurement on the as prepared composites shows significant increase in hardness with increase in reinforced amorphous alloy. Wear property of the synthesized composites were measured by using ball on plate wear tester which shows increase in wear resistance with increase in reinforced amorphous alloys.
