Abstract: As technology advances, improving the efficiency of heat dissipation by thermal adhesives in electronic devices is becoming increasingly important. In this study, a thermal constants analyzer measured the thermal conductivities of eight different epoxy resin thermal adhesives using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the layer-structure fillers enhanced the thermal conductivity of the epoxy matrix the most, while the sharp corner-shaped fillers had the lowest impact on thermal conductivity.
