Parker Unveils Next Generation of Thermal Gap Filler Pads

With a dependable thermal performance of 3.2 W/m-K, the cost-effective THERM-A-GAP PAD 30 reliably conforms to rough surface irregularities and air gaps on heat generating components. For higher performance applications, THERM-A-GAP PAD 60 offers the enticing combination of excellent thermal conductivity at 6.0 W/m-K, while being 40% softer than current high-performance thermal gap pad offerings from Parker Chomerics.

With their special formulation, THERM-A-GAP PAD 30 and 60 ensure complete conformability (with low clamping forces) and the lowest outgassing, thus providing an effective thermal interface wherever uneven surface irregularities, air gaps or rough textures are prevalent. The products are ideal for use in general industrial, life science and consumer markets. Typical applications extend from telecommunications equipment, automotive electronics, and lighting LEDs, through to power conversion systems, consumer electronics, desktop/laptop computers, servers, handheld devices and memory modules. THERM-A-GAP PAD 30 and 60 are also highly effective in vibration-dampening applications.
