Aluminum matrix-based materials are widely used in aircraft, automobile industries due to its lightweight to strength ratio. Globally, researchers focus on developing the materials with lower density with high strength. In the present study, Aluminum 6061 is reinforced with B4C and High entropy alloys (HEA) particles. The specimens were prepared by the stir casting process. Three different samples were prepared by varying the composition of the B4C particles as 1% with 0.2% of HEA, 2% of B4C with 0.4% HEA and 3% of B4C with 0.6% of HEA. The mechanical characterization of samples showed a considerable increase in the hardness withthe increase of the reinforcements. The Aluminum 6061 with 2% B4C and 0.4% HEA were shown comparatively better tensile and hardness property, as compared to the other two samples.
