Abstract: This study primarily focuses on the electrical and thermal conductivity of nanoparticle filled epoxy resins.  Modification of polymers on a nanstructure level has revealed a new world of possibilities for multi-functional materials. Research has found that carbon nanotubes may have the potential to improve mechanical performance of conductive polymers. This research studies the thermal performance of the resins with respect to various types of carbon nanotubes, various concentrations of filler contents and varying surface areas.
