In this study, bio-unsaturated polyester (BUP) raw material is synthesized using modified palm oil (MPO). A new BUP composite has been improved by adding waste polyethylene terephthalate (WPET) to the obtained synthesis. The modified palm oil supplementation decreased the density, Shore D hardness, and elastic modulus of the BUP composite while increasing its thermal conductivity, and thermal stability. WPET filler has been used to decrease the thermal conductivity of the BUP composite, rise its elastic modulus and Shore D hardness.
