We consider a model of non-isothermal phase separation taking place in a confined container. The order parameter $\phi $ is governed by a viscous or non-viscous Cahn-Hilliard type equation which is coupled with a heat equation for the temperature $\theta $. The former is subject to a nonlinear dynamic boundary condition recently proposed by physicists to account for interactions with the walls, while the latter is endowed with a standard (Dirichlet, Neumann or Robin) boundary condition. We indicate by $\alpha $ the viscosity coefficient, by $\varepsilon $ a (small) relaxation parameter multiplying $\partial _{t}\theta $ in the heat equation and by $\delta $ a small latent heat coefficient (satisfying $\delta \leq \lambda \alpha $, $\delta \leq \overline{\lambda }\varepsilon $, $\lambda , \overline{\lambda }>0$) multiplying $\Delta \theta $ in the Cahn-Hilliard equation and $\partial _{t}\phi $ in the heat equation. Then, we construct a family of exponential attractors $\mathcal{M}_{\varepsilon ,\delta ,\alpha }$ which is a robust perturbation of an exponential attractor $\mathcal{M} _{0,0,\alpha }$ of the (isothermal) viscous ($\alpha >0$) Cahn-Hilliard equation, namely, the symmetric Hausdorff distance between $\mathcal{M} _{\varepsilon ,\delta ,\alpha }$ and $\mathcal{M}_{0,0,\alpha }$ goes to 0, for each fixed value of $\alpha >0,$ as $( \varepsilon ,\delta) $ goes to $(0,0),$ in an explicitly controlled way. Moreover, the robustness of this family of exponential attractors $\mathcal{M}_{\varepsilon ,\delta ,\alpha }$ with respect to $( \delta ,\alpha ) \rightarrow ( 0,0) ,$ for each fixed value of $\varepsilon >0,$ is also obtained. Finally, assuming that the nonlinearities are real analytic, with no growth restrictions, the convergence of solutions to single equilibria, as time goes to infinity, is also proved.
