Abstract: This paper reviews processing and synthesis of particulate reinforced ferrous based Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) and Nanocomposites through Powder Metallurgy (P/M) method. By this route it is possible to manufacture MMCs with wide range of compositions and density. As a result there is improvement of wear resistance, abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, mechanical properties and high temperature friction properties. The reinforcing particles commonly adopted were carbides, oxides, borides, nitrides, carbonitrides, complex carbides, intermetallics, synthetic materials etc. Apart from this it also reviews how several factors affect properties of MMCs.
Keywords: Ferrous Matrix Composites, Nanocomposites, Particle Reinforcement, Powder Metallurgy.
