Because epoxy molding compound(EMC) for semi-conductor encapsulants contains high concentrations of fillers, its flow behaviors are affected much by the concentrations and properties of those fillers. This paper reports the effects of a filler concentration, shape, size, and size distributions on the viscosity behavior of EMC(epoxy/silica). In addition, the prediction of viscosity behavior was performed using the Mooney equation. The maximum packing volume in the Mooney equation was calculated by Ouchiyama's packing model and Taguchi's optimization method, while the shpae factor was determined by fitting the experimental data. The results showed that the Mooney equation predicted the viscosity behavior of EMC very well.
