The mechanical properties of the Mg2Si/Mg composites solid-state synthesized from the mixed Mg-Si powders have been investigated. The macro-hardness (HRE) and the tensile strength of the composites increase with increasing the Si content and decreasing the Si size. The particle size of the synthesized Mg2Si depends on the initial Si size; the mechanical properties of the Mg2Si/Mg composite are remarkably improved by using fine Si particles or by decreasing the grain size of Mg matrix grains when the powder mixture was prepared via bulk mechanical alloying process.
