The awareness in plant fiber-reinforced polyester composite materials is increasingly emerging in manufacturing applications and vital exploration. They are inexpensive, absolutely or somewhat biodegradable and recyclable. Plants fibers from sisal, kenaf, pineapple, ramie, bamboo, flax, cotton, hemp, jute and banana has been mostly used as the reinforcement for composites due to its unique properties such as obtainability, renewability, low density and price used for the manufacturing of composites. The plant fiber composites are more environmentally friendly and are used in wide variety of applications such as transportation, military, building construction and packaging. In this presented paper processing, mechanical characterization and its tribological study of new class of Caryota Urens fiber reinforced with Polyester composites has been processed and investigated.
