Wear between unidirectionally oriented fiber-reinforced-plastics and mild steel has been investigated. The wear behavior was found to be greatly influenced by the sliding direction, the mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced-plastics and by the tribological properties of fiber-reinforcements or matrices. A summarization of wear-resistance of seven different kinds of fiber-reinforced-plastics signified that the epoxy resin reinforced with high-modulus carbon fibers was the best wear-resistant fiber-reinforced-plastics.
