Abstract—In this work, gas atomization technique was used to produce aluminum matrix powders (AA7075). Thereafter; boron carbide (B4C) particle reinforcements participated into matrix and then composite powders mixtures were prepared via powder technology. SEM analyze method was used to describe composite material's microstructural properties and it was observed that B4C particles were homogeneously distributed in the AA7075 matrix after 4h of milling time. As a result; parameters which were milling time, closeness of each other the particle size of the matrix with reinforced material and increasing density enhanced pure material of tensile strength approximately % 40.

Index Terms—Aluminum, B4C, mechanical properties, metal-matrix composite, powders metallurgy.
