The objective of this study is to investigate the Tribological Properties of Composite Material with the addition of Carbon Nano Tube (CNT). Industries today use a lot of composite in much area such as marine industry, automobiles, and aircraft. However, this composite material must be improved whereby the future application need a better composite material with excellent mechanical properties and better wear resistance. This project was focused on wear analysis for composite material reinforce with Carbon Nano Tube (CNT), after it had experience a wear testing process. There are two types of experiments done on this project which is wear test using pin on disk and linear abraser machine. For pin on disc experiment, two variable were used which are: Specimen type and load. For the specimen type, it has 6 types which are : Neat epoxy, epoxy + CNT, epoxy +matte fibre glass, epoxy + matte fibre glass + CNT, epoxy + woven roving fibre glass, and epoxy + woven roving fibre glass + CNT. Each type of specimens used had different hardness, coefficient of friction and wear rate. For the load variable, the load applied to the specimen varies from 100 N, 200 N, and 300 N. For the experiment using linear abraser machine, the load varies from 2.5 N, 5 N and 7.5 N. The speed was preset to 60 cycle/min and the total cycle is 300 cycle.
