Sand reinforced polyester composite have been prepared by compression molding method with a variety of range (0,15,30,45 60%) sand respect to the unsaturated polyester resin. various parameter like mechanical, Physical and thermal properties of sand reinforced, polyester resin composite have been determined by various technique like water compressive strength ,flexural strength , hardness and thermal analysis. Physical properties like density and water intake increases with the addition of sand ,compressive strength increases but flexure strength decreases with the amount of sand, on hardness test, Vickers hardness increases but on leeb rebound it decreases with amount of sand, and finally thermal conductivity decreases with the addition of sand.
