Description AA6063-TiC composites have several weight percentages up to 9 wt. % were fabricated by using stir casting route method. The effects of the weight percentage of TiC particles on the microstructures and corrosion behavior of AA6063-TiC composites were studied. The results revealed that the AA6063-TiC composites exhibited higher density than the AA6063 matrix. The accelerated corrosion tests of AA6063-TiC composites in 3.5 wt. % NaCl aqueous solution at room temperature, the AA6063-TiC composites have better corrosion resistance than the AA6063 matrix. Increasing the weight percentage of the TiC particles to reduces the corrosion rate of the AA6063-TiC composites. In this process corrosion rate of 0.4402 mm/year for AA6063 matrix, 0.3891 mm/year for 3 wt. % , 0.3568 mm/year for 6 wt. % and 0.3062 mm/year for 9 wt. % of TiC particles respectively. The poor corrosion resistance of the composites can be attributed to the galvanic effects between the AA6063 matrix and TiC reinforcement.
