The work presents report on determination and analysis of some mechanical properties of cast resin from mango kernel oil (MKO). The bioresin from MKO extracted was produced via epoxidation and acrylation chemical reactions in the previous work. This section of the work is centered on determination and analysis of tensile, compression and impact strengths of cast resin from MKO and compared with cast polyester resin (synthetic resin) for analysis. All the test specimens were produced by cast polymer molding method (hand layup method) where methyl ethyl Ketone peroxide (MEKP) catalyst and cobalt amine hardener were added to each of the resins and mixed thoroughly without reinforcements before pouring the content into the wooden moulds made for the purpose. The tensile, compressive and impact strengths of the cast MKO resin determined were, 177.00N/m2. 101.01N/m2 and 29.57J/m2 respectively while that of the cast polyester resin were 209.11N/m2, 131.68N/m2 and 41.82J/m2 respectively. The results showed that bioresin from mango kernel oil has appreciable mechanical properties close to that of polyester resin and thus can serve as alternative resin to the petrochemical one at lower stresses. However, the overall results gave an insight into the areas of applications and to some extent the limits of mechanical forces that the cast resins can withstand when used without reinforcement. This will help to sharpen the selection decision process where choices are available and the need arises.
