Keywords: Aluminium 6061 | Zircon sand | Graphite

The present investigation has been focused on the development of hybrid composite involving aluminium matrix reinforced with particulates of Zircon sand and graphite (produced by stir casting technique), the cast composites were tested for hardness, wear characteristics and the obtained properties were correlated with the microstructure. The results of the present investigation indicate that there is a considerable improvement in the hardness valves, microstructure and resistance for wear.
