Nowadays several industrial applications require biodegradable or environment friendly materials in place of existing materials in use without any compromise on their properties or their improved performance. Natural fiber reinforced polymer resin composites are biodegradable composites as they are using fibers from renewable sources. Biodegradation of the above composites can further be improved by adding natural resin with synthetic polymer resin. The experimental research work has been carried out using composite of Polyester (Synthetic Resin) – cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) resin (natural resin) with jute fiber as reinforcement. Tensile test was performed on specimens made of composites with various proportion of CNSL and polyester resin and jute fiber reinforcement with different alkali treatment, fiber length and fiber volume. Influence of the above factors on tensile strength was analyzed and the best combinations of factors are suggested for composite processing.
