Aluminum alloy 2900 with granules size of 10 μm is extruded to an aluminum plate. The extruded composite contains Reinforcements of graphene with nano size 10 nm thick. The extruded composites samples are fabricated initially by powder metallurgy route by using different weight percentage concentration such as 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75 wt% of graphene. Hot extrusion is carried out after microwave sintering and furnace cooling. The microwave processed extruded plates are tested for mechanical characteristics and tested for flexural characteristics. The other Parameters and methods are used to analyze the mechanical properties of the composite material processed by microwave sintering. The parameters such as density, Hardness and flexural strength are evaluated.
