  • About thermal interface materials

    The trend for smaller and more powerful electronics leads to increasingly complex thermal challenges for systems designers. Using thermal interface materials (TIMs), the heat from hot components can be transferred to a cold surface or cooling hardware by means of low thermal resistance and high thermal conductivity combinations.

    A variety of technologies and constructions ensure the most efficient heat transfer solution is available, whatever your requirements. Browse our range of tape, gap pad, phase change and electrically conductive thermal interface materials in the products tab or learn more about the different product types below.
