Article summary:

1. PEEK (poly-ether-ether-ketone) is a polymer commonly used in tribological applications due to its properties such as high stiffness, low density, and chemical resistance. It is often reinforced with different types of fibers to improve its strength and tribological properties.

2. The reinforcement of PEEK with carbon or glass fibers has been studied extensively, and it has been found that both types of fibers can reduce the specific wear rate at long dry sliding against steel. However, the effect on friction coefficient varies depending on the type of fiber used.

3. The study highlights the importance of considering the conditions of the tests used and the methodology employed when characterizing the tribological behavior of PEEK composites. The authors acknowledge the help provided by mechanical engineers in conducting experimental tests.
