Abstract: Aluminium compound materials saw to be the best choice with its exceptional utmost of sketching out the novel material for gaining desired properties. Aluminium alloy based composite materials are expanding broad affirmation for aeronautics application in perspective on their high strength combined with low density or light weight. In the present concerned work, an endeavour is put to prepare and focus the tensile and compressive behaviour of Aluminium alloy LM13 and Solid Glass Microspheres (SGM) particulates Composite with perspective to get better properties with light weight. Stir casting method was used to manufacture these aluminium alloy LM13 and SGM particulate composite with 10 v%, 15 v% and 20 v% of reinforcement. Based on ASTM benchmarks, the composite samples were prepared and tested, and the results obtained were then analysed. A notable improvement was perceived in the strength of tensile and compressive capacities of the developed metal matrix composites (MMC).
