Abstract: Aluminum proved its effective usage in various applications because of its light weight and high strength. This work highly focused on fabrication of aluminum alloy Al7075 with addition of (10 wt. %) of silicon carbide (SiC) and (10 wt. %) graphite (Gr) by using friction stir processing. Initially reinforcement distribution examined by using SEM and EDS analysis. Co efficient of friction and wear was examined by pin on disc Tribometer. Based on the experimental results, improved mechanical properties and tribological properties were obtained compare to the base metal Al7075 aluminum alloy. 
Keywords: Aluminum, Friction stir Processing, wear, Silicon Carbide, COF.
