This paper presents the effect of clay addition on the compacted and sintered sand. The study aims to develop clay – silica sand composite through powder processing and to study the density, porosity and hardness of the composite. Addition up to 20% weight percentage of clay in silica sand were developed through powder metallurgy method and sintered at 1300º C in 1 hour. Green density and porosity in decreasing trend however an improvement in sintered density was observed. Also the addition of clay up to 20% of weight percentage increases the hardness to 8.906 GPa.
