Thermal management

Electrolube, the manufacturer of electro-chemicals, announces the introduction of new thermal management products with the most advanced formulations for electronics, automotive and LED manufacturers.

The company’s new silicone-free thermally conductive phase change material, TPM550, features high thermal conductivity of 5.5 W/m.K and becomes workable at approximately 45°C.

The material’s advanced formulation ensures minimal contact thermal resistance. Like TPM350, TPM550 also produces no mess due to its thixotropic characteristics which prevent flow outside of defined interfaces.

TPM550 can be reworked and its lower specific gravity means that more applications can be served per kilogram of the material, further reducing production costs.

An additional silicone-free, thermally conductive phase change material, TPM350, provides low thermal resistance and excellent reliability.

The RoHS compliant material is exceptionally easy to apply - similar to grease but without the mess and pump-out. TPM350 can be screen or stencil printed for high volume production applications and is also dry to the touch, which is particularly useful for pre-apply applications.

Electrolube’s new Non-Silicone Heat Transfer Compound, HTCX_ZF10S is a Zinc Oxide (ZnO) free version of one of the company’s best-selling thermal products, HTCX, featuring improved thermal conductivity, lower oil bleed and lower evaporation weight loss.

The high performance thermal management paste, designed for use as a thermal interface material, is isuitable for applications where the use of zinc oxide, is restricted, silicones are prohibited, and for applications exposed to varying temperature and humidity conditions.

The highly stable HTCX_ZF10S is a non-curing paste, enabling simple and efficient rework of components if needed and is recommended where efficient and reliable thermal coupling of electrical and electronic components is required, and between any surface where thermal conductivity and heat dissipation is important.
