Abstract

The results of the characterization of the Sugarcane Bagasse Ash from the co-generator boiler (SCBAB) of a Cuban sugar mill, obtained in previous works are offered. Aluminum Matrix composites (AMCs) samples were fabricated employing powder metallurgy technique. The comparative study of the Al-SCBAB composite with respect to the non-reinforced matrix showed an increment in the hardness of the AMCs reinforced with SCBAB as compared with the non-reinforced matrix. Finally, it was concluded that the SCBAB has good properties for its use as reinforcing material in AMCs.
