A new type of eco-friendly friction material containing biomass jute fibers and hazelnut shell powder has been prepared. A chase friction tester was used to determine the friction performance of the materials. The friction performance was evaluated using an extension evaluation method (EEM) and the formulation was optimized. The friction test results showed that jute fibers can stabilize and decrease the friction coefficient when the temperature of the iron drum was lower than the thermal decomposition temperature (T d) of jute fibers, but if the volume content of jute fibers was too high the friction properties could not be maintained at high temperature. Both thickness and weight wear rates decreased significantly after the addition of jute fibers. The EEM results showed that the optimum amount of jute, which gave the best friction performance, was 9.0%.
