In this paper, mechanical properties of Aluminum (Al) matrix nano-composites, fabricated by Powder Metallurgy (PM) method, has been investigated. Alumina (Al2O3) nano particles were added in amounts of 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10 weight percentages (wt%). For this purpose, Al powder (particle size: 20 µm) and nano-Al2O3 (particle size: 20 nm) in various weight percentages were mixed and milled in a blade mixer for 15 minutes in 1500 rpm. Then, the obtained mixture, compacted by means of a two piece die and uniaxial cold press of about 600 MPa and cold iso-static press (CIP), required for different tests. After that, the samples sintered in 600°C for 90 minutes. Compression and three-point bending tests performed on samples and the results, led us to obtain the optimized particle size for achieving best mechanical properties.
