The objective of this work was to investigate the effects of SiC particle size(50, 100 um) and additional elements such as Si, Cu and T1 on aging behavior in Al-5Mg-X(Si,Cu,Ti)/SiCp composites fabricated by pressureless infiltration method using hardness and wear test, scanning electron microscopy(SEM) and difierential scanning calorirnetry(DSC). The peak aging time in Al-5Mg-X(Si, Cu, Ti)/SiCp(50,1oO um) composites is shorter than Al-5Mg-0.3Si alloy.The peak aging time of 50 um SiC particle reinforced A1- 5Mg-X(Si,Cu,Ti) composites is shorter than those of 100 um SiC particle reinforced of Al-5Mg-X (Si,Cu,Ti) composites. The Al- 5Mg-0.3Si-0.1Cu-0.1Ti/SiCp(5O um) composites aged at 180°C has higher hardness and better wear resistance than any other aged composite.The aging effect is promoted by the addition of Si and Cu in Al-5Mg/SiCp composites, so the wear resistance of Al-5Mg/SiCp composites with Si and Cu elements is enhanced by the aging treatment.
