    Abstract

    Reaction at the fibre/matrix interface in the metal matrix composites during service at the elveted temperature degrades the composites and limits the application. One of the factors that influances technique. Vecum infiration technique is one of the important and chapter fabrication routes for metal matrix composites (1). In the present investigations stainless steel(AISI304)and nichrome(80wt%Ni-20%wt%Cr)wires of diameter 152 cm were reinforced in commercially pure aluminium and A1-10Wt%Mg alloy matrix by vacum infiltration technique.Composites up to 60vol% fiber were prepared. The composites were exposed to different temperatures(200 to 650) for different intervals of time(up to 100h)and then examined under the microscope for reactions at the metal matrix interface.
