Abstract: In this study, sintering parameters in conventional pressure-less sintering are analyzed and the effects of uncoated, Cu(Ni)-coated, and Cr-coated diamond particles are compared for their bulk thermal conductivities. Thermal conductivity was measured at room temperature using the Hot Disk Thermal Constant Analyzer TPS 1500. The addition of diamond particles caused a decrease in the thermal conductivity due to facial air gaps in the composites.
