In a disclosure published in Volume 4, Number 6 of the Xerox Disclosure Journal, November/December 1979, page 82 1, the problems encountered in rendering an elastomeric material thermally conducting by incorporating therein large volume quantities of high thermal conductivity fillers are discussed. It was proposed in that disclosure to treat the filler with an alkoxy organotitanate, either prior to its addition to the elastomer or immediately after the filler is added to the elastomer. The alkoxy organotitanate imparts an organic coating around all of the filler particles, resulting in easier processing and averting weakening of the elastomer.
