Aluminum alloy are in great demand in the field of defense, automobile, and aerospace industries. These alloys are known for its light weight, high thermal conductivity, and low coefficient of thermal expansion, high wear resistance, and high strength. Composites materials are the multi-functional materials that are having better properties. They can be utilized for the requirements of any application. In this study, Aluminum oxide were united by using Friction Stir Processing(FSP) into the commercially aluminum alloy-6063. Samples were subjected to the various tool rotating with aluminum oxide powder. Microhardness observations were carried out. The result showed that increasing rotating speed more uniform distribution of Aluminum oxide particles. The microhardness of produced alloy was improved as compared to that of base aluminum alloy.
