In this research, some mechanical properties such as (flexural strength, young modulus and wear rate) have been studied to the composite Epoxy resin (EP) reinforced with % 5 volume fraction of chopped kenaf fibers (KF) ) by using hand lay-up technique . The natural fibers treated with 0.5normality of NaOH solution. The experimental results were compared with treated fibers composite, un treated fiber composite and pure epoxy. It was found that the treated kenaf fibers have increasing in young modulus, flexural strength values of the (EP/ KF) composite, comparing with neat resin (EP), while wear rates were increased with applied load of all samples.
