Thermal Conductive Adhesives: Introduction

  • Thermal conductive adhesive is a smooth, dark grey paste, which is hard, durable, and possesses high thermal conductivity. Thermal conductive inks possess extreme insulation properties. The adhesive is viscous in nature as it is densely filled with thermal conductive ceramic powders. This conductive ceramic powder provides high thermal conductivity for electronic appliances.
  • The conductive adhesive easily bonds with metals, ceramics, glass, and most plastics used in electronic assemblies. Thermal conductive adhesives are generally designed to provide an efficient heat transfer path between heat generating components, heat sinkers, or other cooling devices. Thermal conductive adhesive tapes consist of a carrier that is highly loaded with thermal conductive fillers coated on single side or both the sides with high temperature resistance.
  • Thermal conductive adhesives are utilized in numerous electronic applications owing to the significant generation of heat in modern electronics components. Thermal conductive adhesives offer considerable resistance to chemicals, high temperature, and possess significant thermal stability. Several manufacturers of thermal conductive adhesives have one-part and two-part epoxy systems, as well as silicone and polyimide systems.
