This paper presents an experimental
work to determine the effect of kenaf fibre loading in the
polyester matrix through dry sliding test. These
composites were produced by mixing raw kenaf fibre
with polyester resin. The samples were prepared at 5
different weight percentages of fibre namely: (5, 10, 15,
20 and 25 wt%). Abrasion Tester (TR-600) was used to
carried out abrasive wear tests in dry sliding conditions.
These tests were performed at 10N load and constant
sliding velocity of 1.5m/s. The specific wear rates of
natural fiber composites were obtained. The morphology
of composite surface before and after tests was also
examined using 3D microscope imaging.
