The patent describes a method for forming a composite material by electrodeposition in which a metal matrix is reinforced by electroconductive filaments. Prior to being fixed to a cathode for encapsulation by the matrix, the filaments are treated so that an electrononconducting film is formed on the surfaces thereof. This insulates the filaments from the electrodeposition process so that the matrix is formed around the filaments without interfering with the matrix buildup so as to encapsulate the filaments free of faulty voids.
