Two phases namely a matrix and reinforcement phases constitute composite materials. Most of studies shows that the material used for components should posses better mechanical properties. In this paper four samples were prepared by using stir casting. First sample is Al7075 with 2% SiC and 8% Fly Ash, second sample consist of Al7075 with 4% SiC and 6% Fly Ash, third sample consist of Al7075 with 6% SiC and 4% Fly Ash, and the fourth sample is of Al7075 with 8%SiC and 2% Fly Ash. Tensile strength and yield stress and hardness increased when Silicon Carbide and Fly Ash is added to Al7075. Microstructure is also studied to understand the wear. Al7075 with Silicon Carbide and Fly Ash finds application in automobile industries.
