GAP PAD

GAP PAD VO

Features & Benefits

  • Thermal conductivity: 0.8 W/m-K
  • Enhanced puncture, shear, and tear resistance
  • Easy material handling
  • Electrically isolating

Description

GAP PAD VO is a cost effective thermally conductive interface. The material is a filled thermally conductive polymer supplied on a rubber coated fiberglass carrier allowing for easy material handling. The conformable nature of GAP PAD VO allows the pad to fill in air gaps between PC boards and heat sinks or a metal chassis.

Typical Applications include

  • Telecommunications
  • Computer and peripherals
  • Power conversion
  • Between heat-generating semiconductors and a heat sink
  • Area where heat needs to be transferred to a frame, chassis, or other type of heat spreader
  • Between heat-generating magnetic components and a heat sink
