The PAN (Polyacrylonitrile) fiber enhanced friction materials were prepared by hot-press method based on a low metal formula, and the influences of PAN fiber content on the physical performance mechanical property, friction and wear properties and brake noise of the friction materials were investigated. The results show that as the PAN fiber content increase, the density decrease, and the porosity, shear strength and compress deflection of the friction material increase firstly then decrease; adding PAN fiber to the friction material has little influence on the nominal friction coefficient, but will reduce the anti-high temperature wear performance, and as the content increases, the friction coefficient increases; however, adding PAN fiber will improve the friction and wear rate of materials, but with the PAN fiber content increasing, friction and wear rate exhibits the tendency of decreasing firstly and then slightly increasing; adding adequate PAN fiber is conducive to the suppression of noise generation, when the PAN fiber content is about 3%-5%, the noise performance is the best.
