Presently, the awareness of the public along with strict legitimate forces over the use of polymers, the manufacturing and automotive industries started using the renewable materials. Since, natural filler reinforced composites play vital role in developing lightweight structural materials. This study focuses on utilizing saw dust as reinforcement in polyester matrix along with natural filler. Finally, the influence of saw dust a natural filler addition into the KmNO4 chemically treated saw dust composite has been evaluated by mechanical and dynamic mechanical properties. It is found that the addition of natural filler and surface treatment has enhanced the properties of composites due to their synergetic effect. This effect improves the adhesion and uniform stress transfer among the reinforcements. The filler surface morphology was evaluated using micrographs obtained from scanning electron microscope
