Thermal Gap Fillers

SILCOTHERM® Gap Fillers

These Silicone based Thermally Conductive 1:1, 2-Part, Paste materials are designed to be used as flexible Gap Fillers in electronic assemblies. The cured material is not self-bonding but remains flexible allowing for a good interface between components or complete PCB’s and heat sinks or enclosures. They are easily applied and provide a very efficient path for heat dissipation between uneven surfaces, removing air gaps that would cause heat to build up in the component. They can be supplied in Semco® twin cartridges together with a static mixer for manual use or in bulk containers for automated dispencing.

These Gap Fillers are used in applications with wide tolerances or differences in the gap between the component or PCB and the heat sink. In some areas the gap may be close to zero in other areas it may be several mm’s. If a hard interface material is used, the pressure exerted when trying to eliminate any air gaps could be very damaging to either the PCB or delicate components.

Gap-Filler-Product-IllustraThe advantage of using a liquid dispensable Gap Filler is the ability to apply the material to very specific areas and at varying thicknesses, thus offering commercial and technical advantages. One disadvantage of a liquid system is if a rework should it be necessary is more difficult to perform.
