Abstract : Graphene is an extraordinary material being the lightest and strongest material, it has an incredible mechanical property. It being allotrope of carbon, also has exclusive optical and thermal properties, which make it evident filler for producing multipurpose composites significantly metal matrix composites. Aluminium contributing to highly used metal due its cost effectiveness, corrosion resistance and light weightiness in numerous industries. Aiming to synthesize aluminium metal matrix reinforced with graphene nano filler and to investigate its mechanical behavior by using stir casting method. By varying the weight percentages of graphene nano particulates are used to fabricate metal matrix composite by using 6061 Aluminium grade. The developed nano composite is further verified by metallurgical microscopic images to discuss the distribution of reinforcement in the metal matrix base. The strength of the developed composite is determined by tensile test, hardness of the material by Brinell’s hardness test and toughness by impact test. The interference of two material causing various properties to change in the material and helps in choosing the best combination for our required material for the product.
