In this study, mechanical and wear behaviour of polymer-boride composite (AlB2/PE) materials produced through pressure moulding technique have been experimentally investigated. Three different composite materials that include 5 wt%, 10 wt%, and 20 wt% AlB2 reinforcement phase were tested using pin-on-disk arrangement. Compared with the matrix, the 20 wt% AlB2 composite shows a 71% increase in the ultimate tensile strength and the highest wear resistance.
