  • High performance cooling with 3M thermally conductive tape

    Thermally conductive adhesive transfer tape is designed to provide a preferential heat transfer path between heat generating components and heat sinks, or other cooling devices.

    These tapes are thin, durable and high performing under both indoor and outdoor conditions. Not only do they offer long term, efficient heat dissipation, they present cost savings and weight reduction by replacing traditional fixing methods and their associated assembly processes.

    3M thermally conductive adhesive transfer tape and double sided tape is available in a variety of thicknesses and conductivity strengths. They can be slit to non-standard widths or custom die-cut  to suit your application and its manufacturing processes. Click on the products tab to browse our range of thermal tapes.

    3M thermally conductive tape characteristics:

    • High temperature adhesion and thermal conductivity
    • High mechanical strength
    • Easy to apply
    • Flame retardant
    • Excellent long term reliability
    • Electrical insulation properties
    • Good thermal performance in indoor and outdoor conditions
    • Highly conformable providing excellent wet-out on many surface conditions

    Our applications include:

    • LED lighting
    • Flex circuit and power transformer bonding
    • Heat sink mounting
    • Power transistors
    • Integrated circuit packaging
    • Battery thermal management
    • Plasma displays

    3M also offer a range of thermally conductive acrylic and silicone pads, as well as thermally conductive grease, from their wide portfolio of thermal interface materials.
