Abstract: Quenching media, time, temperature are prime factors towards the enhancement of grain refinement structure and mechanical properties in metals. The present study reports the usage of novel quenching media that is cow urine to improve the mechanical properties that is tensile strength, yield strength and hardness of Al 2585 alloy. The ingredients such as (sodium, nitrogen, sulphur, Vitamin A, B, C, D, E, minerals, manganese, iron, silicon, chlorine, magnesium etc.,) present in cow urine are homogenously which help to improve micro structure and mechanical properties of Al alloy 2585. From the study, it is revealed that maximum tensile strength and yield strength is improved and grain refinement is exhibited at 50% blend. Likewise maximum hardness at 80% blends.
