The paper presents the findings of the research conducted on chilled LM25-borosilicate glass-flyash hybrid composites cast with varying weight percent reinforcement (3%, 6%, 9% and 12%). The composites are cast with the help of metallic and non-metallic end chills that are judiciously placed in the sand mould. The composites are tested for the evaluation of their strength by drawing the specimens from near, as well as away from the chill end. This is done to study the effect of chilling on the mechanical properties of the composites. Microstructural analysis of the cast composites is done to determine the quality of dispersion of the reinforcements within the matrix.
