Iron is the most commercially used metal in various fields from the ancient period. Nowadays its application in the marine and aerospace fields gets reduced gradually due to the density and ease of corrodibility nature. In this study the iron properties are optimized without compromising its hardness and strength. The metal matrix is formed in iron by adding alumina and bagasse fly ash as an alloying element. This study is done by powder metallurgical route. Also, experimental analysis is done on composite material after the sintering process at austenitization temperature. The wear test are taken for composite to check mechanical properties and the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is used to understand the fine dispersion of alloying element in the composite. Finally, the samples are benchmarked with each other to identify that it is valuable one.
