A356 has its extensive applications in the fabrication of airplane wing parts, turbine blades for jet engine and other complex parts of the airplane which led to lightweight and hard material. TiB2 is a hard ceramic particle which has high hardness is reinforced in aluminium matrix to increase its mechanical properties. The material was fabricated through liquid metallurgy route by reinforcing different weight percentage of TiB2 (4 wt%, 8 wt% and 12 wt%). The mechanical properties and morphological studies are analysed. The result reveals that there is an increase in tensile strength, hardness and impact strength of the composite with the increase in reinforcement. SEM morphology shows the bonding between the reinforcing particle and the matrix alloy.
