Thermally conductive, electrically insulating epoxy molding compounds that use milled silicon as a filler material, and methods and processes for making the same. Some example embodiments of the present invention comprise the use of a passivation agent, for example ethyl silicate, to deposit a thin layer of glass on the surfaces of the powders as the powders are milled, creating an attractive surface dielectric property on these surfaces.
