This paper is aimed to process properties of the conventional hardness and microstructure of Al-Sic nano composites with grapheme flakes. It is planned to use various combinations with weight percentage of grapheme and Sic and to produce the Aluminum matrix composites by Compression Process. The use of AL-Blast furnace slag reinforced Composite materials is finding applications day by day in engineering fields such as aero-space, automotive, aircrafts constructions, etc. Glass fibre polymer composites are reinforced with granulated blast furnace slag (GBFS) ball milled to size of 5 nm in different weight fractions, i.e. (0%, 5%, 10% and 15%) and fabricated by using hand lay-up technique. These fabricated slabs are cut into required dimensions and the tests for mechanical properties like Tension test, Compression test, Flexural test Impact test and Hardness test were performed. Tension test, compression test and Flexural test were performed on Computerized Universal Testing Machine (UTM), Impact test was performed for Izod and Charpy specimens and Hardness test was performed on Brinell's Hardness Testing Machine. From the experimental results obtained, it was noticed that the mechanical properties were enhanced when the blast furnace slag percent was increased and also among these percentages of blast furnace slag, the specimen having 5% was possessing highest properties.
