Composite is a promoted material consists of two or more materials to enhance the properties mechanically. In this study, composites were created by mixing a matrix; magnesium and the reinforcement; SiC microstructure with the addition of a volume fraction of: 2 %vf, 4 %vf, 6 %vf and 8 %vf. This magnesium composite fabrication process is stirred casting. The results of this study show that the addition of SiC micro particles will enhance the properties of the composite-mechanical wise-, namely, wear resistance and hardness. The addition of SiC micro-reinforcing particles that produced the best magnesium composite was by adding 8 %vf volume fraction which produced a hardness value of 83 HB and a wear rate of 0.002015706 mm3/m. Increased mechanical properties in magnesium composites is caused by the reducing grain size and Orowan strengthening mechanism.
