Nano composite metal is produced by introducing the nano phase material in the metal matrix of metal or an alloy. The unique property of the nano phase materials is their high surface area. The high surface area and surface dominant characteristics tend to be more reactive with the metal matrix. The method of mixing the nano reinforcements in the metal in liquid state followed by solidification process is convenient method of production of metal matrix nano composite. The Carbon Nano Tube reinforcement and Nano phase Carbon introduction to the molten metal matrix of AISI 1330 steel may result in enhanced physical, chemical and mechanical properties. The paper deals with a comparative analysis in the properties of MMNC – AISI 1330.
