Abstract: In this paper, polyamide (PA, composed of at least 60% renewable materials) was used as a polymer matrix to prepare PA-hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) polymer composites with varying hBN contents. Two different PA samples were used in this study: a low viscosity grade PA (PA-30), as well as a high viscosity grade PA (PA-90). The composite polymers were tested to evaluate their thermal, physical, and mechanical properties. It was concluded that these composites had more favourable properties than other polymers that had been previously tested, and so the composites would be a good choice as an electronic packaging material.
