Thermal Pads Feature Low Thermal Resistance, High Tensile Strength

Keratherm 86/82 is a high tensile strength, thermal interface material that improves heat transfer from ICs and other components to their heat sinks. The material is a thermally conductive, electrically isolating silicone film with a reinforcing fiberglass layer for tear and cut-through resistance. The silicone provides excellent wetting properties for filling interface surfaces. Thermal impedance is 0.05 W/mK, and thermal conductivity is 6.5 W/m-K. The fiberglass layer provides a tensile strength of 20 N/mm2 and allows safe and easy removal and reapplication of pads. Available in kiss-cut shapes on continuous rolls, the pads are inherently tacky and will stick to heat sinks during assembly. The material meets UL 94V-0 flameclass requirements and has continuous use temperature range of -40°C to +200°C. Volume pricing starts at $0.30 per square inch for standard material.
