In this paper, the “two body abrasive wear characteristics” have been studied for the cylindrical samples of pure epoxy and chemical treated coir fibre filled epoxy polymer composites of the size of 10 mm and 32 mm at different sliding speeds in multiphase conditions. The wear characteristics have been estimated by following two parameters, the normal load and sliding speed in a single pin-on-disc wear testing machine. It has been found that the wear characteristics decreases by increasing the sliding speed in both the cases / samples, pure epoxy and treated coir fibre filled epoxy respectively. Finally, we get that the rate of abrasion for composite is slightly less as compared to pure epoxy polymer composites.
