Al-20 vol.-%SiCp composite was prepared using direct explosive compaction. Interfacial characterisation of the composite was preformed using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The results showed that the interface seemed to be clean and no interfacial AI4C3 reaction product was generated along the interface between SiC particles and Al matrix. The results also showed a better bonding between SiC particles and Al matrix in the central region of the compact sample.
