I know some epoxy resins are designed with thermal conductivity in mind, but for most formulations nobody cares.

I wish I had asked more questions about the potting compound Westinghouse used .... but that was a long time ago ...
Ha ha ha..... I am not sure of how that would apply here. In a CF matrix, the thermal coefficient of expansion, and thermal conductivity is very small. But as this stuff is lung around in ( flywheel, not stator) about 3-400 deg F. temps.... eventually it will pass through that temperature......
