This paper is about development of new method of producing metal matrix composites with small size reinforcements. The method is based on combination of mechanical alloying and dynamic compaction methods. Mechanical alloying was implemented in planetary mills; dynamic methods included magnetic-impulse pressurizing and explosive treatment. Optical microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were main methods for investigating structure of obtained composite materials. Research shows that developed method allow obtaining high quality material without any defects at interface between components.
