Waste sugarcane bagasseash and graphite utilizing as reinforcement in fabricating of an aluminium alloy (Al7075) based matrix hybrid composites. The aluminium matrix hybrid composites have been fabricated by stircasting method at 750 °C. Casting was developed in circular metal mould having 5 circular slots of diameter of 21 mm and length of 250 mm. Adding bagasseash with varying reinforcement of three cases, in first case 2% constant with varying graphite 1%, 3%, and 5%, in second case 4%, and in third case 6% constant with varying same graphite percentage. The effect of the reinforcement has been performed through various mechanical tests. The mechanical properties measuring such as Brinell hardness and tensile strength of both the samples have been prepared as per the ASTM E23 and E8 standards. Results give out that there will be greater effect of reinforcing different bagasseash in aluminium alloy matrix hybrid composites. In the third case more enhanced mechanical properties have been achieved as compared to case one and two of bagasse–ash combination. It shows that the selection of bagasseash as reinforcement has one of the most significant criteria for the fabrication of aluminium matrix hybrid composites.
