The K2TiF6 ,K2ZrF6 powder and aluminum were selected as the raw materials to in situ synthesize the particulates reinforced aluminum matrix composites. During the fabrication process the electromagnetic field was imposed. The atomic ratio of Al/Ti/Zr in the particulates is determined as 3/0.4/0.6. The Al3Ti0.4Zr0.6 is a new kind of intermetallic compound, some properties of which fall in between those of Al3Ti and Al3Zr. Electromagnetic field plays an important part in fining particles and promoting their uniform distribution. When the electromagnetic induced intensity is 0.05T the particles have 0.5-2μm average size and uniform distribution in matrix. The crystal grains of matrix resemble equiaxed ones. The average size of grains are nearly 100μm, 50μm and 25μm when the electromagnetic induced intensities are 0, 0.025T and 0.05T seperately.
