Clutch plates are usually made of cast iron and high carbon steels. The cast iron has high compressive strength, low tensile strength and low ductility. Clutch lining material is made up of asbestos. In order to obtain good life and more effectiveness and to reduce the cost of clutch plate, the new fibre reinforcement with clutch material is introduced. For the reinforcement with clutch liner material, jute fibre is selected. Due to the reinforcement of the clutch material, the properties has been improved. Then, the comparison of the properties and effectiveness of the new plate with the existing plate is to be done.
