An Al-Al+B4C-Al layered composite was produced by semi-continuous casting and hot rolling method, the innerlayer is Almatrix reinforced by 40wt.% B4C (F60), while the outlayer is pure Al. The result shows that the composite innerlayer (Al-B4C) has a high macrohardness of 43HBS1.5/125/30, once the outlayer pure Al has 16.5HBS1.5/125/30. However, due to the significant difference between Al and B4C in the inner layer, there are always defects near their interface and there is a sharp hardness gradient. By means of surface alloying, oxidation and acid attack on the reinforcement surface, a microamorphous transition (MAT) layer was found bounding the reinforcement’s particles. The microhardness behaviour shows the MATlayer has ~900HV (1Kgf/15s) on the reinforcement boundary and decays exponentially until the transition layer have no effect on the Almatrix (~32HV). This MAT layer bounding the reinforcement reduces the properties gradient and raises the composability, leading to a better impact resistance
