      Silicone rubber filled with micron-alumina trihydrate (ATH) is a substantially used composite material for high voltage outdoor insulators. This article investigates the effect of nano-boron nitride (BN) addition on the dielectric,thermal stability and thermal conductivity of solely micron-ATH-filled silicone rubber by fabricating coalesced network of particles. Micron-ATH/nano-BN-filled hybrid silicone rubber composites are fabricated with a ratio of 30/0 wt%(ATH30), 29/1 wt% (ATBN1), 27/3 wt% (ATBN3), 25/5 wt% (ATBN5) and 23/7 wt% (ATBN7) using mechanical mixing and water bath sonication techniques. Results suggest that the hybrid batch of silicone rubber composites (ATBN) possess lower permittivity, dielectric loss, enhanced thermal stability and thermal conductivity relative to ATH30. ATBN1 offers low permittivity and dielectric loss values of 3.64 and 0.0086 at 1000 Hz relative to 3.87 and 0.0224 ofATH30, respectively. As far as thermal properties are concerned, ATBN5 emerges as the most promising candidate for electrical insulation with 31 and 200$^ {\circ}$C higher temperatures for 10 and 15% mass loss, whilst it has shown 20% higher thermal conductivity than ATH30.
