Cashew nut shell powder and carbon black were used as hybrid fillers to reinforce Natural rubber compound. The fillers; cashew nut shell powder and carbon black were loaded at 0, 30:0, 25:5, 20:10, 15:15, 10:20, 5:25 and 0:30 respectively. The cashew nut shell was carbonized and characterized for particle size, pH and moisture content, the results were 316.7d.nm, 8.13 and 0.58% respectively. The mechanical analysis viz; tensile strength, hardness, compression set and abrasion resistance were also carried out, the obtained results showed that hybridized compound with CNSP25/CB5 gave the best tensile strength of 5 Mpa as against the unfilled compound with 0.3 Mpa, this was also the same trend with the abrasion resistance with compound hybridized with CNSP25/CB 5 with the best abrasion resistance of 0.54% and was also the same compound with the best hardness result with hardness value of 47 IRHD, similar result was also obtained for compression set with the same composition with the best compression result of 6.3% compression set.
