Elemental Mg and Mg-alloy (AZ91D) based composites reinforced with 15 vol.% silicon carbide (SiC) particulates (average particle size 15 μm and 150 μm) were synthesised by stir casting technique. Particle distribution, particle–matrix interfacial reaction, hardness and mechanical properties in the as cast as well as T4 heat-treated conditions were investigated. The composite materials show uniform distribution of SiC particulates. The average grain size decreases with the presence of SiC particulates and the grain size further decreases as the particle size decreases. The AZ91D alloy composite shows an increase in hardness and elastic modulus compared to monolithic alloys. The improvement in elastic modulus of composite containing 15 μm size SiC particles is significantly higher than the composite with 150 μm size particles. The ultimate tensile strength and ductility of composite materials were reduced compared to unreinforced alloy.
