Gap Pad

Gap Pad 1500

Features & Benefits

  • Thermal conductivity: 1.5 W/m-K
  • Un-reinforced construction for additional compliancy
  • Conformable, low hardness
  • Electrically isolating

Description

Gap Pad 1500 has an ideal filler blend that gives it a low modulus characteristic that maintains optimal thermal performance yet still allows for easy handling. The natural tack on both sides of the material allows for good compliance to adjacent surfaces of components, minimizing interfacial resistance.

Typical Applications include

  • Telecommunications
  • Computer and peripherals
  • Power conversion
  • RDRAM™ memory modules / chip scale packages
  • Areas where heat needs to be transferred to a frame chassis, or other type of heat spreader

  • (1) Thirty second delay value Shore 00 hardness scale.

  • (2) Young's Modulus, calculated using 0.01 in/min. step rate of strain with a sample size of 0.79 inch^2.

  • (3) The ASTM D5470 test fixture was used. The recorded value includes interfacial thermal resistance. These values are provided for reference only. Actual application performance is directly related to the surface roughness, flatness and pressure applied.
