Rapid Advancement in the field of advance Biocomposite has attracted large number of researchers to diagnose and expand the use of light weighted and environment friendly materials for various applications. In this work, depolymerized natural rubber (DNR) was prepared and used as toughening agents for epoxy resin and almond shell particles are filled in modified epoxy resin as reinforcing material. Further, different tests including Tensile Test, Compression Test, Hardness Test, Impact Test etc. were performed to diagnose the effect of various weight percentage (wt%) of composition of blended DNR for achieving maximum toughness and then its effect on treatment with different weight percentage of Almond Shell Particle. Results were analyzed and finally the conclusion is made based on the experiments.
