On a Pin-on-Disc test rig with composite disc and steel pin tribological experiments were done on pultruded glass fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites plates. The wear and frictional behavior strongly depends on the structure. Also the normal load plays an important role in the frictional behavior, which is of greater importance than the speed. The formation of a thin polymer film onto the wear track results in a lowering of the coefficient of friction with 20%.
