The aim of this project is the experimental investigation of the Friction and wear properties of polymer matrix composite such as unidirectional Glass –Epoxy (G-E) laminates are experimentally examined of three different fiber orientations, namely cross ply, symmetric ply, unidirectional ply , at different temperature conditions. These laminates are made by hand layup followed by compression molding. The wear behavior of these composite will be investigated by pin on disc apparatus which is a wear friction monitor machine. Against one standard EN31 steel disc under various sliding speed and loading, different temperature conditions and design of experiments approach using Taguchi‘s orthogonal arrays are used .Microscopic investigations of the worn surfaces are conducted to identify the operating wear mechanism and tribological behavior. From experimental test it found that wear rate is increases with increase in load of 50N, 75N, 100N. Disc rotating at 900rpm, 1100rpm, and 1300rpm at room temperature. But when test conducted at 50oc, 75oc different temperature conditions wear rate is increases with increase in temperature.
