Epoxy and their composites used as stand by to metal and alloys In wide engineering application therefore the objective of many studies to improve the mechanical behavior of epoxy composites .Current research proposes composite made by incorporation of Ni-Cu micro fillers reinforced epoxy.The mechanical properties and strain energy of proposal composite of fillers Ni-Cu reinforced epoxy were investigated .The research deal with different weight percentage of fillers (2%,5%) and each weight percentage include implicitly distributed equivalent to wt.% that used in Ni-Cu alloys (70/30) and (90/10) in order to prevent corrosion between base metal alloys and epoxy composite if it is used for coating.The result shows that the strain energy and mechanical properties were improved with adopted the distributed at composition of composite that is used in current study. The best and maximum results achieved at composite C9 at (2wt. %) fillers with implicitly distributed (70%Cu+30%Ni).
