Naming Metal matrix composite (MMC) is very crucial to both the developer and the end users. It is an indication of what the developer put together which goes a long way in assisting the end user in selecting from myriad of available MMCs. The existing nomenclature put forward by Aluminium Association identified the matrix, reinforcement, percentage composition and the form of reinforcement but left out the particle size of the reinforcement. The particle sizes have been found to have significant effect on the properties of MMC and should be included in the adopted naming system. This paper revised the existing standard from ‘Matrix/reinforcement/volume%form’
