The microstructures, mechanical properties and electrical resistivity have been evaluated for deformation processed Al-20 vol % Mg and Al-13 vol % Mg composites. The Mg second phase adopts a convoluted, ribbon shape filamentary morphology after deformation. Both the size and spacing of these filaments decreases with deformation. The strength of these composites increases exponentially with reduced spacing of Mg filaments. The electrical resistivity of these Al-Mg composites is slightly higher than that of pure Al.
