Sil Pad

Sil-Pad K-10

Features & Benefits

  • Thermal impedance: 0.41°C-in2/W (@50 psi)
  • Tough dielectric barrier against cut-through
  • High performance film
  • Designed to replace ceramic insulators

Description

Sil-Pad K-10 is a high performance insulator. It combines special film with a filled silicone rubber. The result is a product with good cut-through properties and excellent thermal performance. Sil-Pad K-10 is designed to replace ceramic insulators such as Beryllium Oxide, Boron Nitride, and Alumina. Ceramic insulators are expensive and they break easily. Sil-Pad K-10 eliminates breakage and costs much less than ceramics.

Typical Applications include

  • Power supplies
  • Power semiconductors
  • Motor controls
