Abstract: In this paper, wear, frictional and dynamic mechanical analysis of developed hybrid sisal/jute fiber reinforced epoxy composite are studied. Composites are fabricated by hand lay-up technique keeping constant 30 wt% of fibers content. Wear and frictional properties of hybrid composites are carried out at different operating parameters such as applied load (10-30 N), sliding speed (1-3 m/s) and sliding distance (1000-3000 m). The dynamic mechanical analysis of composites in the term of storage modulus (E'), loss modulus (E") and damping parameter (Tan δ) in a temperature range of 30°C to 200°C is investigated. The hybrid composite with 50% of sisal fiber content (J50S50) shows the minimum value of specific wear rate and coefficient of friction while maximum value of storage modulus and loss modulus. Alkali treatment of fibers further reduced the value of specific wear rate and coefficient of friction, and improved the value of storage and loss modulus for hybrid composite J50S50.
