This paper presents wear and friction properties of carbon-carbon composites (CCC) manufactured by resin transfer molding (RTM) process. During composite fabrication thickness stitching was employed to improve inter laminar tension and shear properties. Wear and Friction characteristics of carbon-carbon composites were evaluated using pin-on-disc set up. Results of test indicate that surface of composites having stitches in a perpendicular direction show increase in wear rates with increase in load.
