The recent research progress in fibre reinforce resin matrix composite materials was reviewed. The friction characteristics and wear mechanism were discussed, the modification of resin based matrix was presented, the effect of fibres on the friction and wear mechanism was summarized. Especially, the properties of sisal and sisal fibre reinforced material were indicated. It is considered that the new research will be focused on the use of sisal reinforced materials.
