Silicon carbide-Graphite-Al6061alloy composite having 10 to 20% of silicon carbide and 5 to 10% graphite fibre were fabricated by liquid metallurgy (stir cast) method. The casted composite specimens were machined as per test standards. The specimens were tested to know the characteristics of the Hybrid Metal Matrix Composites (HMMc). Experimental study was carried out to investigate the mechanical properties such as hardness, tensile strength, shear test and impact test. As a result hardness decreases with the increase in the percentage of Gr, tensile strength, and shear test.
