This research is about developing a carbon nanotubes reinforced copper matrix composite by using the powder metallurgy process and the result is being analyzed. The copper composite was prepared on the volume fraction ofthe carbon nanotubes of2%. The test sample of pure copper also developed to compare the effect of reinforcing carbon nanotubes to the copper. The powder metallurgy method that was used in this experiment to develop the samples has three main stages that are mixing, compacting and sintering. Sintering is the most crucial part to be taken care of including the temperature and also the environment of the sintering process. In this experiment, the sintering temperature used is 850°C and the sintering process is done in and inert gas environment which is Argon. The usage ofcarbon nanotubes reinforcement is become a new invention in advance material technology and expected to be wider and wider globally because of the enhanced properties of the composite. By increasing the volume fraction of the carbon nanotubes to 2% some of the properties value such as thermal conductivity is significantly increased which prove that the carbon nanotubes give a good benefits as the reinforce material. And as the outcome of this research, the usage of composite will be widened in the advance material technologies.
