Recently, biomimetic brick and mortar composites (B/M) are gathering great attention due to their outstanding properties. The use of graphene as bricks is expected to achieve good mechanical performances combined with remarkable thermal diffusivity making them optimal candidates for heat spread applications. Macroscopic composites (1 mm thick) have been manufactured at different filler content (up to 100% vol%) and their morphology have been investigated by scanning electron microscopy. Bending test have been carried out on samples for measuring the effect of the polymer amount on the composite. The thermal diffusivity has been investigated, both in plane and cross plane, by light flash analysis (LFA). Coupons showed a well aligned inner structure at each resin content, however the effective performances depends on the capability of stress transfer.
