This work includes preparation of composite material by reinforcing blend of (EP80% + UPE20%) with different layers of Kevlar fibers (2, 4, 6 and 8) at volume fraction of 30%. Hardness and thermal conductivity of all samples were studied before and after (UV) irradiation. The Experimental results showed that, the hardness value increases with increasing the number of Kevlar layers for all samples before and after (UV) irradiation. The thermal conductivity slowly increases with increasing Kevlar layers before and after (UV) irradiation.
