This report presents the work carried out ot develop quasicrystal (QC) reinforced metal matric composites by casting route. The work involved preparation of stable Al62Cu25Fe13 alloy based quasicrystals by conventional casting route, and its incorporation in pure Al and Al-6.5Si alloy after pulverisation by ball milling. Two different particle size in the range -120+240 and -325+400 mesh were used for the present study. The study showed that smaller QC particles dissolved in the liquid Al metal during stirring and solidification.
