The AA1050 and AA6082 plates were used in producing dissimilar joint through friction stir welding (FSW) technique. The developed dissimilar joint was then subjected to multi-pass friction stir processing (FSP) technique. Various tests for the AA1050/AA6082 (AA1050 on the advancing side) and AA6082/AA1050 (AA6082 on the advancing side) joints were conducted on joints subjected to 1pass (1P) and 4pass (4P). The microstructural analysis showed that the increase in number of FSP passes resulted in a reduced grain size regardless of the of material position. The Vickers microhardness for AA1050/AA6082 FSPed joints increased towards AA6082 side while the microhardness for AA6082/AA1050 FSPed joints decreased towards the AA 1050 side regardless the number of the passes. The ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of AA1050/AA6082 joint increased with an increase in the number of passes while AA6082/AA1050 fluctuated between the specimens sampled from different locations of the FSPed joints.
