Abstract: This study aimed to enhance the thermal and mechanical properties of polyethylene (PE)/boron nitride (BN) composites by manipulating the BN concentrations in the matrix and by applying shear fields in laminating-multiplying elements (LMEs). A thermal constants analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the PE/BN composites using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the composites increased with BN concentration. As well, the high intensity shear field enhanced the dispersion of the highest concentration of BN fillers which improved thermal conductivity.
