Wood plastic composites (WPC) are made from wood and annual plant fiber or flours, mixing with plastics materials. WPC provide better properties than resources that form it. This renewable material has many utilization areas because of outstanding properties such as enhanced strength, stiffness, creep, physical and mechanical properties and dimension stability. In the present work, series of filled Polypropylene (PP) composites with olive pit and almond shell flour loading (between 0-40 wt %) were prepared, to study the effect of the filler content on the mechanical, wear and friction properties of polypropylene polymer composites.
