Synthesization of a biopolymer cardanol resin from cashew nut shell liquid (CSNL) using poly condensation as a composite matrix. Locally harvested banana fiber was cut into an average length of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 mm and then processed with alkali at varying concentrations of 1, 3, 5, 7 & 9 percent NaOH. The aim of the study is to investigate the maximum flexural strength of Alkaline Treated Banana Fiber Reinforced Cardonal Resin (ATBF/CR) Biocomposites. ATBF/CR is fabricated and evaluated the process by using Minitab 17 software with 3 variables and 5 levels with well known technique Response Surface Methodology (RSM) -Central Composite Design (CCD) in order to attain the optimum flexural strength of 47.25 MPa for our ATBF/CR Biocomposites.
