The erosion behavior of selected polymers and fiber plastic composites (FPC) was analyzed to establish the correlations between material and wear properties. The erosion behavior of plastics and fibre-reinforced composites (FRC) was found to be characterised by different wear mechanisms. The plastics undergo ductile failure while the fiber reinforced composites (FRC) tend towards a brittle behavior.
