The aim of this research is to study the retarding heat flow in epoxy conbextra (EP-10) resin and increased thermal insulation by using oxide fillers of Magnesium Oxide (MgO) added as a filler with different percentages (1%,2%,3%) to resin and study the effect of this additive on heat flow and thermal insulation of the resin. Fourier equation was used to calculate the changing in thermal conductivity coefficient (k) for epoxy resin before and after addition of Magnesium Oxide. The results show improved retarding heat flow and increased thermal insulation of the resin by reduced thermal conductivity value after oxide addition, and the value of thermal insulation will be increased with increasing of additive percentage of Magnesium Oxide as illustrated in diagrams which represent the relation between thermal conductivity coefficient with temperature.
