The ever growing demand for lighter and cheaper material has created the importance of composite as alternate to monolithic material. Metal matrix composites (MMC) are replacing structural steel and other monolithic material for structural, automobile, thermal, electrical applications. Main advantage of MMCs in transportation sector are lower fuel consumption, less noise and lower airborne emissions. TiB2 has emerged as better particulate reinforcement when compared to SiC, Al2O3 and B4C due to the fact that it is having high hardness and good wear resistance which makes its use in seals, wear parts hybrid composites and cutting tools. Of late, lot of interest has been generated in researchers and practicing engineers in manufacturing of composites via stir casting route. Present papers reviews the mechanical and wear properties of different particulate that reinforced aluminum metal matrix composites vis a vis Al/TiB2p. MMC are processed through stir casting route.
