Jet electrodeposition is an advanced manufacturing technology that can produce metallic nano-scaled microstructures with unique performance. Cu–Al2O3 composite coatings were prepared by jet electrodeposition from a plating bath with nano-Al2O3 particles suspended into the bath. Detailed microstructure changes upon the changes of experimental conditions were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). The effect of the deposition conditions on the composite coating mechanical properties was investigated. Experimental results indicated that the Al2O3 particle adding into the electrolyte was able to refine the composite coating grains and enhance the deposit inner-structure as well as compactness, which considerably strengthens the composite coating’s mechanical property. It is proved that the current density in the range of 100~500 A/dm2 could offer grain refining effect and the addition of Al2O3 nanoparticles can effectively promote the composite coating mechanical properties.
