Sheet Type Silicone Thermal Gel Sheets Feature Control, Dissipation of Heat in Electronic Component Applications

June 30, 2009

Sheet type silicone thermal gel sheets from Advanced Antivibration Components (AAC) feature excellent control and dissipation of heat in electronic components. Applications include computer internal components such as CPU, motherboards, power transformers, power supply equipment and electronic parts that produce heat, such as semiconductors. These soft gel sheets are sold in a 400 x 400 mm (15.7 x 15.7 in.) size and are 0.5 mm to 3 mm thick to make for easy and even application. They are a RoHS controlled substance and are usable over a wide temperature range: -40°C to +200°C (-40°F to +392°F). This makes them good electrical insulators and flame retardant UL-94 V-0 approved.

There are 5 gel sheets, identified as the V30Z62MCH Series types, which are designed with heat conducting properties. Their thermal conductivity ranges between 1.8 and 6.5 W/m • k. They contain nothing harmful and are therefore considered environment-friendly.

At the AAC eStore you can check price and availability, place an online order, download 3-D models or request a quote at anytime. Additional technical specifications are contained in Catalog V110 available free upon request from Advanced Antivibration Components.
