The limitations of engineering are mainly attributed to the limitations in the availability of materials that can deliver all the desired properties for a given end application. But, due to the development of composites, there has been an enormous advancement in industries like automobile, sports, power generation, defense, and aerospace. Metal Matrix Composites became one of the sought-after materials because of their high specific properties, such as strength-to-weight ratio. Even though these materials exhibit enhanced mechanical and thermal properties, their usage is still limited. Some of the reasons include the scaling up of processing and the uncertainty in their joining and corrosion behavior. This study attempts to bring together information on metal matrix composites processing and corrosion behavior, mainly focusing on Magnesium and Aluminum metal matrix composites.

Keywords: Aluminum composites, Corrosion, Magnesium composites, Mechanical properties, Metal matrix composites, Processing methods.
