The effect of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) on solid particle erosion behaviour of aramid fabric reinforced-epoxy (A-E) hybrid composites was investigated. The aramid fabric reinforced-epoxy hybrid composites have been fabricated with and with out UHMWPE filler. The solid particle erosive wear was evaluated at different impingement angles from 300 to 90 0 at constant velocity and at constant standoff distance .The silica sand of size 30 -50 and 60 -80 μm was used as erodent. The results show erosive rate of UHMWPE filled aramid- epoxy composite shows lowest value. The presence of UHMWPE in epoxy matrix gives good bonding between filler and matrix. The morphologies of eroded surface were examined by the SEM in order to establish the erosion mechanism of the composites.
