  • About phase change thermal interface material

    Our range of high performance phase change thermal interface materials are designed to meet the thermal and reliability requirements of today’s electronics.

    Phase change thermal materials are solid pads at room temperature. At temperatures above their transition temperature, they begin to soften and flow, filling the microscopic irregularities of the components it contacts. The result is an interface with minimal thermal contact resistance. Due to the gradual change in viscosity (softening), migration (pump out) is minimised. They provide superior surface wetting, minimum bondline thickness and actively expel entrapped air.

    Phase change materials are used in a variety of applications, including microprocessors, power components and modules and chip sets.

    Phase change thermal interface material characteristics:

    • Range of thicknesses
    • Meet all environmental requirements including RoHS
    • Stable and reliable performance
    • Easy to handle and apply
    • Available as die-cut parts in rolls or sheets with or without tabbed liners for easy application
    • Reusable options are available, ideal where multiple tests are required with the same thermal solution
