Polyamides (PA) of Glass fiber (GF) with Molybdenum disulfide (MOS2) are used in various types of friction and wear reduction application of vehicle parts. Self lubricating composites like MOS2 exhibits advanced mechanical properties and abrasive resistance. In this work, comparative analyses of various material properties are studied and developed components which are having similar requirements in the vehicle parts. There are three materials are identified for the comparative analysis. 1. Power metallurgical sintered parts 2. Polyamides Grade 6 (PA6) without adding fillers. 3. Polyamides with Glass filled (PA 66) fibers and MOS2
