The wear behavior of a novel composite aluminum‐graphite composite prepared by simple powder metallurgy techniques is reported. Graphite powders were surface‐treated with copper to activate the powder surface and to improve the wettability of the graphite surface. The mixed Al‐C (7 percent, 5 percent, 3 percent, 1 percent y 0.5 percent C weight content) powders <100 μm were pressed at room conditions and then heat‐treated at 600°C. The tests showed improvements in wear resistance as the graphite content decreases, achieving the optimal behavior at 1 percent content.
