Abstract

The current work initiates to use treated betelnut (areca
catechu) fibres as reinforcement in polyester composites.
Wear and frictional characteristics of T-BFRP composite
were investigated against polished stainless steel
counterface under dry/wet contact conditions using a BOD
machine. The tests were conducted at 2.8 m/s sliding
velocity, different applied loads (5N - 200N) and sliding
distances (0 - 6.72 km). Fibre mats were orientated antiparallel (AP) with respect to the sliding.
