Thermally conductive Insulators

SIL-PADS: A cleaner, more efficient Alternative for electronic Applications

SIL-PAD materials meet the critical needs of a rapidly changing electronics industry because SIL-PAD thermally conductive insulators, in a variety of ways, continue to be a clean and efficient alternative to mica, ceramics or grease for a wide range of electronic applications. They offer excellent thermal performance, are more durable than Mica, create less mess than grease and are highly cost efficient.

The SIL-PAD Advantage

  • Excellent thermal performance
  • Clean, mess-free alternative to grease
  • Superior durability as compared to mica
  • More cost-effective than ceramic
  • Provides electrical shorting resistance
  • Simplified, clean application
  • Under time and pressure, thermal resistance will decrease
  • Customizable for various applications
  • A specific interfacial performance that matches the need Efficient total applied costs
  • Ideal for modern compact, high heat-generating assemblies
