Study on Thermal Conductivity of Polyetheretherketone/Thermally Conductive Filler Composites
Thermal properties of PEEK/silicon carbide(SiC) and PEEK/carbon fiber(CF) were investigated from ambient temperature up to 200°C measured by laser flash method. Thermal conductivity was increased from 0.29W/m-K without filler up to 2.4 W/m-K with at 50 volume % SiC and 3.1W/m-K with 40 volume % carbon fiber. Values from Nielsen theory that predicts thermal conductivity of two-phase system were compared to those obtained from experiment.
