Al-2024 alloy can be reinforced with different percentages of Silicon oxide particles using a stir casting method. The solution treatment of the composite sample and the unreinforced alloy was carried out at 550 �C for 2h followed by aging at 150 �C for various aging times between 1h and 5 hrs. The existence of SiO2 particles led to increasing the peak hardness of the alloy. The results revealed that peak hardness of the composite sample took place at shorter times than that of the unreinforced alloy for the samples solution treated for 2 h for both the composite and the unreinforced alloy that led to the fastest aging kinetics and the maximum hardness. Matrix microhardness, tensile strength and wear test measurements were carried out after each step of heat treatment.
