There has been a great interest throughout the past years, in using the natural fibres to reinforcement the polymeric composites. A comprehensive study of the tribology science of the fibre composites is essential to ensure its capability to stand any given task. The main objective of the research is to obtain empirical equations for the temperature and friction of the studied Kenaf fibre. Minitab software was implemented in the research to conduct all the needed tests also to produce the figures. The key findings of this research are that, the frictional behavior of composites has a high frictional coefficient at the begging of the tribology test because of the high shear force in the contact zone, friction coefficient and temperature increases when the applied load is increased, friction coefficient decreases with the increment of the rotating speed and the high influence of rotating speed on temperature so that temperature increases when rotating speed increases, in other words temperature will increase 5 co for every 0.1 m/s increment in the rotating speed.
