Abstract: In this research, the effect of four different coupling agents on the thermal conductivity of an aluminum particle reinforced epoxy composite, was studied. The results concluded that with an increasing concentration of aluminum particles in the epoxy, an increase in the thermal conductivity of the composite was noted. Prior to being treated with the coupling agents, the composites experienced a thermal conductivity reading of 1.03 W/mK. Post treatment, the thermal conductivities ranged from 1.27 W/mK to 1.48 W/mK, depending on the type and concentration of coupling agent used.
