Abstract: Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the effect of addition of pine tree particles to styrene butadiene rubber is studied. Thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat capacity and density were all investigated. Varying amounts of the pine tree filler particles were added to the polymer matrix in order to form composites. Increasing amounts of the pine tree filler resulted in higher thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity, with decreasing specific heat capacity.
