The Aluminium-Magnesium alloy is most widely used in construction aircraft structure such as wings and fuselages, automobile parts and bodies and also using marine applications. The hybrid composite was prepared by most commonly use stir casting methods and this alloying is reinforced with constant Micro-Titanium (Ti) and varying Boron carbide (B4C). The corrosion behavior of prepared hybrid composite was studied by salt spray test. The evaluated corrosion rate by calculating the weight loss in
