Abstract

Experimental specimens were fabricated using Tin (Sn) as core material while silicon carbide and rice husk acted as reinforced materials to increase the specimen’s hardness. Silicon carbide and rice husk were reinforced in the Tin using metal casting process (mold plate casting). The specimen mold plate was cut using laser cutting machine and the material plate used was Aluminum. After metal casting process has been completed, the specimen in the mould were pressed using the hot press molding machine. Two types of testing were used in this study namely tensile test and hardness test. Three specimens have been used for each test. The result for the testings have been observed and analyzed based on their tensile strength and material hardness. It has been found that the tensile strength for the composite material is higher than the initial Tin (Sn), as well as its hardness. However, the mixing technique could have been improved to obtain better SiC and rice husk distribution.
