High strength light weight lead-free composite solder materials containing varying amount of nano-alumina particulates were synthesized by powder metallurgy process employing different extrusion temperatures. The presence of nano Al2O3 particulates not only enhanced strength and improved dimensional stability but also reduced the weight of the solder alloy matrix. Fairly uniform distribution of the nano-alumina particulates was observed in the composites.
