The experimental investigations of magnesium based matrix material reinforced with the TiO2 particles with various weight ratios of 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10% are presented in this research paper. The purpose of this work is to intricate the manufacturing processes of pure magnesium with the addition of Titanium oxide through the powder metallurgy route. The powder blending was done with the energetic ball and jar mill. The compaction pressure of 650Mpa is given to improve the process of cold compaction and strength. The Sintering temperature of 550 oC and holding time of 40 min was used to sinter the compacts to get better results. The microstructural analysis by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for the starting powders and fabricated samples are carried out and results revealed that homogeneous composition is present. The mechanical properties are evaluated and the results proved that improvement in 13.8%, 17.8% and 29% for the density, hardness values and ultimate tensile strength.
