Abstract: The present invention relates to the art of aluminum alloys. More specifically the invention is directed to the use of powder metallurgy technology in combination with small quantities of specks of pre-extruded stock. The pre-extruded stock of micro-chips is added to the two part mixture of nano-powder aluminum and fine boron carbide powder in the mixing phase of manufacturing. The resulting material is referred to as Macro-Particle Reinforced Metamic HT to differentiate it from Metamic HT produced without micro-chips. Both product forms of Metamic HT are indistinguishable in microstructure as well as thermo-physical properties. Therefore in the production cycle both are referred to as Metamic HT.
