In the present study, silicon carbide particulate reinforced LM6 alloy matrix composites were fabricated by green sand molding process by varying the particulate addition by weight fraction on percentage basis. Tensile properties and hardness tests studies were conducted to determine the tensile strength, modulus of elasticity and the hardness of the as cast MMCs. Microstructural properties of the as cast composites have also studied by using Scanning Electron Microscope. The experimental result reveals that the tensile properties and hardness of the as cast composites increases with the increasing the weight percentage of silicon carbide particulates in the matrix metal.

Key words: LM6, SiCp, Metal matrix composites (MMCs), Hardness, Tensile Strength.
