Aluminium matrix composites were produced by adding 2, 4, 6 and 8 wt. % of titanium nitride (TiN) nanoparticles respectively to aluminium matrix through powder metallurgy technique. The mixed powder was compacted at a pressure of 50 MPa to produce the specimens. The specimens were sintered in nitrogen atmosphere at a sintering temperature of 4000C with sintering time of 2 hours for each. Microstructural and mechanical properties of sintered composites was investigated. Potentiodynamic polarization test was conducted to determine the corrosion behaviour of sintered samples in sodium chloride.
