Abstract: Glass-fiber reinforced polymer-matrix composites are widely used in electro and automotive industry due to their easy processing, low cost, and possibility to tailor properties. Functional properties of the composites strongly depend on their weight fractions and individual properties of constituents. In this study, E-glass fiber (EGF) weight and microstructure are analyzed to see the effect on thermal properties of the composites. Thermal transport properties of the composites were measured using the HotDisk TPS 2500S at room temperature. Results show that thermal conductivity of composites slightly decrease with increasing fiber fraction.
