Abstract: The article investigated the hybridization of multi wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with filler in polymer matrix composites (PMC) which is one of the techniques used to combine different properties of fillers to make more unique composites. The properties of two different hybrid filler composites (Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) hybrid filler and physically hybrid filler) were then studied. The thermal conductivity was measured through the use of a Hot Disk Thermal Constant Analyzer which utilized the transient plane source (TPS) method. The phenolic composites that were filled with the CVD hybrid filler increased the thermal conductivity of the composite when compared to the physically hybrid filler.
