Abstract   Novel light metal matrix composites have been processed by powder metallurgy. The feasibility of manufacturing magnesium- and aluminum-based composites reinforced with carbon nanotubes has been assessed. Blends of metal powders and CVD processed multi-wall carbon nanotubes were compacted by hot pressing followed by hot isostatic pressing. Sintering conditions were found, which allowed to obtain bulk specimens with sound mechanical properties.
