Lightweight and high-performance materials are required for the application in the automobile, aerospace, and aircraft industries. The lightweight material can be obtained by developing composites by adding hard reinforcement particulates in the matrix of soft material. In this investigation, composites have been developed with varying weight% (6, 8, 10, and 12) of B4C in the matrix of Al7075. The mechanical properties and wear behaviour of the composites were determined. Tensile strength and hardness were increased with an increase in weight% of thereinforcement. The wear rate was increasing with an increase in the sliding velocity at constant load. However, the increase in wear rate at velocities from 1.5 m/s to 2.5 m/s was decreasing with an increase in the weight% of the reinforcement
