This study has been carried out to show the use of natural fibres as the potential substitute of synthetic fibres in tribo-composites. The abrasive wear behaviour and mechanical properties of waste sisal/glass, sisal/carbon hybrid fibre reinforced polypropylene (PP) composites were analysed in this study.
