Abstract: Using a three-roll mill process, graphite nanoplatelets (GNPs) were dispersed in a silicone polymer for application as a thermal interface material. Through the use of electron microscopy and XRD, the researchers were able to determine that the GNPs dispersed better when using the three-roll milling process as compared to previously used methods. GNPs were mixed with the silicone polymer in wt.% up to 25, with the highest wt.% yielding the highest thermal conductivity of all the composites as determined by the Hot Disk TPS method.
