Alumunium Matrix Composite (AMC) is a material that has great potential especially in automotive industry. AMC has good corrosion resistance, density, electrical conductivity and heat properties. This paper will study the crystal structure form composite materials and the corrosion properties of the sample. Composite material made with Alumunium as a matrix and reinforcement in the of organoclay variations 0%, 1%, 2%, 3% wt by the hotpress method at 600oC for 1 hour. Characterization of crystal structure and phase using X-Ray diffraction. The corrosion properties of the samples were examine by potentiodynamic curves in 3,5 % wt NaCl solution. The results showed that the addition of weight percent composition of organoclay produce different characteristics and corrosion properties. Corrosion properties can be seen form the rate of corrosion slower along with the addition composition of the organoclay. The smallest corrosion rate results found in alumunium composites with reinforcement variations of 3% by 1,776 x 10-4 mm/year.
