Currently, Aluminium (Al) 6061 material is used in Automobile and industry applications, Al 6061 matrix material gives good formability with excellent mechanical properties. Reinforcement of distribution is a major problem in some casting methods and to overcome this casting problem, squeeze casting technique was used in this research work, where Aluminium 6061 act as a matrix material and SiCp was used with different volume percentage. The effects of volume in ractions of reinforcements on the composite properties were investigated. The micro structural characterization results revealed a homogenous distribution of SiC particles in the matrix, which is almost free of pores can be obtained by squeeze casting method. The mechanical characterization revealed that the density, hardness and impact energy of composites increased while increasing the percent volume fractions of SiC particles
