Abstract: In this article, the thermal and tribological properties of Phenolic/Carbon Nanotube (CNT)-Alumina Hybrid composites were examined. One of the main properties that was measured was the thermal conductivity, which was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method with the use of a Hot Disk Thermal Constant Analyzer. The experiment compared the thermal conductivities of the hybrid composite, mixed phenolic composite, and pure phenolic to determine which one had the highest thermal conductivity value. By comparing the results, it was determined that the CNT-Alumina hybrid had the highest thermal conductivity.
