Abstract: Thermally conductive polymers are the most effective and economic methods of removing heat accumulation from microelectronics. In the present study, m-xylylenediamine (MPDA) was used as a curing agent for the epoxy matrix and analyzed for its effect on the thermal conductivity of the composite. Thermal conductivity was measured with a Hot Disk thermal analyzer using the transient plane source (TPS) method. When filling content of the multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) was 2%wt, thermal conductivity of the MWNTs/epoxy composite was approximately six times higher than pure epoxy resin.
