Abstract

This paper introduces the Composites and their various applicable Reinforcements. The concepts of Matrix material, their various manufacturing techniques to produce materials with high specific strength are introduced. It is difficult to produce hard materials with high load carrying capacity. Thus, the composite materials with varying degree of composition and with modified matrix material to produce materials of unparalleled hardness and high load bearing capability are studied through experimentation. The characteristics of the cast composites with varying degrees of composition are studied by performing hardness test using Rockwell Hardness Machine and Compression Test using Universal Testing Machine (UTM).
