Abstract: In this work Tribological property of luffa fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester composites are carried out. The composites were fabricated using the compression moulding technique with optimum pressure of 150Mpa. The fabricated specimens were cut as per the ASTM standard of the wear test and ASTM G99 as followed for the entire testing of the wear. In this work, the applying load and velocity of the rotating disc was considered as a process parameter. The fiber loading was taken for the specimen to be fabricated as 30%. The test on the specimen was conducted for 10N, 20N, 30 N and velocity of 1m/s, 2m/s, 3m/s respectively. The result shows that coefficient of friction increase when increases in sliding distance.
