The purpose of this study is to investigate properties of the composite powders produced by ball milling process. Different weight ratio of high purity Al2O3 powders were added to the Al matrix as reinforcing element. Ball milling process was conducted by a planetary type ball mill with WC milling balls and vial at constant parameters like rotating speed, time, Ball-to-Powder ratio and Process Control Agent. Samples that taken from the powder mixtureby various time intervals were analyzed by SEM, XRD and BET surface area and porosity measurement systems.
