Abstract : pElectroless process is employed to get uniform coating of copper on graphite particles. Electroless coating process was performed based on Taguchi L16 orthogonal array. Optimal coating parameters were determined by Taguchi method using Grey Relational Analysis. ANOVA technique was further employed to know the optimal parameters from grey relational grade. The present study is to maximize thermal conductivity and coating thickness characteristics of electroless copper coated graphite, by optimizing the four coating parameters viz. composition of zinc, copper sulphate, graphite and sensitization time. Microstructural aspects were studied through SEM analysis. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved./p
