The behavior of and structure with use of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) composites are summarized here in details. The research progress of friction and wear resistance properties as a tribological charaterstics of PEEK composites with modified by carbon fiber, other nano scale and micro-scales particles, are also summarized scopes for further future research ahead are put forward.
