In this work a nanocomposite WC-Co metal oxide was synthesized by using a solid state mixing techniques. Certain metals oxide were used in this process (Al, Mg, Si, and Zr) to enhance the property of the powder. The nano-powder was consolidated and sintered with a fast sintered techniques to produce a very hard metal with an outstanding properties, In fabrication techniques, it is important to maintain the powder properties during consolidation process. In addition, Chemical and mechanical characterization were performed for the consolidated metal. The mechanical characterization shows a very hard material with an outstanding properties.
