Abstract: This article investigates the effects of improving thermal conductivity of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) /expanded graphite (EG) composites using the ball milling method. PVDF is widely used in the field of thermal conductivity due to its superior mechanical properties, chemical resistance, and oxidative stability. Thermal conductivity of the composites was measured with a Hot Disk TPS 2500, using the transient plane source method. Results showed thermal and electrical conductivities of PVDF/GNSs composites improved due to larger specific surface area of GNSs.
