Abstract: Despite their tendencies to have low thermal conductivities, epoxy molding compounds (EMCs) are extensively used in automotive applications. In this study, magnesium oxide (MgO) was used as a conductive filler in ECMs to improve the thermal conductivity of the ECMs without altering other important characteristics. A Hot Disk thermal constants analyzer was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the MgO-EMC composites. Ultimately, one of the prepared MgO-EMC compounds was found to contain the perfect amount of MgO filler to improve the thermal conductivity of the material without compromising its rheological control.
