Metal matrix composites (MMC) are the combination of two or more dissimilar base metals which in turn gives new metal. Composites have better properties than their base material. Nowadays, composites play the major role in manufacturing industries especially in automotive industry. This paper reveals the reinforcement of Aluminium alloy (6061) with Silicon Carbide and Copper in different ratios to produce new composite using stir casting technique in normal atmospheric temperature. In this work, mechanical behavior of the composite namely tensile strength, hardness and Flexural strength were evaluated. It was observed that sample 2 shows highest tensile strength of 155 MPa with hardness 73. The result shows that the hybrid composite had better mechanical property.
