In this report grinding characteristics of chloroprene rubber (CR, matrix material) are experimentally investigated in order to obtain fundamental information as to grinding mechanisms of aramid fiber reinforced rubber. Conclusions obtained in this report are as follows: (1) Regular patterns just as file is generated on ground surface of CR, and generative mechanism of the pattern is classified into two distinct types. (2) The tangential force is larger than normal because of severe friction between bonding material on diamond wheel surface and CR which make elastic recovery before and after a contact with the cutting edge. (3) Height and spacing of the pattern decrease with an increase of mean contact stiffness between surface of grinding wheel and CR by varying setting depth of cut, speed ratio and radius ratio.
