Functionally graded carbon nanotubes (CNT) and nano Silicon carbide (nSiC) reinforced aluminum (Al) matrix composite materials were fully densified by a simple ball milling and hot-pressing processes. The nSiC was used as a physical mixing agent to increase dispersity of the CNT in the Al particles. It was observed that the CNT was better dispersed in the Al particles with a nSiC mixing agent compared to without it used. SEM micrograph showed that the interface of the each layers had very tightly adhesion without any serious pores and micro-cracks. This functionally graded dual-nanoparticulate-reinforced Al matrix composite by powder metallurgical approach could also be applied to comples matrix materials.
