Electrolube Debuts Thermal Management Products at electronica

Reading time ( words)

Electrolube has launched new thermal management products with the most advanced formulations for electronics, automotive and LED manufacturers at the recent electronica show in Munich, Germany. Electrolube’s latest thermal products, which have been designed to provide superior properties and increased performance across a greater range of applications.

The company’s new silicone-free thermally conductive phase change material, TPM550, will be highlighted at electronica. TPM550 features high thermal conductivity of 5.5 W/m.K and becomes workable at approximately 45°C. The material’s advanced formulation ensures minimal contact thermal resistance. Like TPM350, TPM550 also produces no mess due to its thixotropic characteristics which prevent flow outside of defined interfaces. TPM550 can be reworked and its lower specific gravity means that more applications can be served per kilogram of the material, further reducing production costs.

An additional silicone-free, thermally conductive phase change material, TPM350, provides low thermal resistance and excellent reliability. The RoHS compliant material is exceptionally easy to apply - similar to grease but without the mess and pump-out. TPM350 can be screen or stencil printed for high volume production applications and is also dry to the touch, which is particularly useful for pre-apply applications.

Electrolube’s new Non-Silicone Heat Transfer Compound, HTCX_ZF10S is a Zinc Oxide (ZnO) free version of one of the company’s best-selling thermal products, HTCX, featuring improved thermal conductivity, lower oil bleed and lower evaporation weight loss. The high performance thermal management paste, designed for use as a thermal interface material, is ideal for applications where the use of zinc oxide, is restricted, silicones are prohibited, and for applications exposed to varying temperature and humidity conditions. The highly stable HTCX_ZF10S is a non-curing paste, enabling simple and efficient rework of components if needed and is recommended where efficient and reliable thermal coupling of electrical and electronic components is required, and between any surface where thermal conductivity and heat dissipation is important.

Electrolube’s brand new high viscosity, non-slump, paste-like sealant, ERCS310ML, has recently achieved excellent beta-test results in automotive applications. Demonstrating highly effective electrical insulation characteristics, ERCS310ML is a room temperature vulcanisation (RTV) sealant with a rapid cure time, curing upon exposure to atmospheric moisture. Based on modified polymer technology, ERCS310ML is a single component, solvent-free, low odour sealant offering excellent elasticity, making it ideal for a wide variety of bonding and sealing applications, and it remains flexible and elastic over a wide operating temperature range of -40 to +130°C.

At this year’s electronica event, Electrolube had an especially strong presence with two separate stands across the exhibition complex, highlighting the company’s thermal management products in Hall B1 Stand 259 and showcasing new conformal coatings and encapsulation resins in Hall A6, stand 214.

Is Your EMS Partner Up to Speed With WEEE 'Open Scope?'

E-waste encompasses a myriad of "unseen" metals, semi-metals, and chemical compounds that are found inside circuit boards, wires, and electrical connections. If not handled correctly, chemicals—such as cadmium, barium, lithium, lead, mercury, and beryllium—can present a significant health risk through direct contact, the inhalation of toxic fumes, or the build-up of toxins in water, soil, and food products.

Conformal Coatings

While conformal coatings may have been something of an afterthought at the front of the design process, that can no longer be the case. Conformal coatings are now a critical part of any board assembly that might be subjected to challenging conditions. But coatings can also contribute to increased mean time between failure in any conditions, even environmentally controlled environments.

Synergy Between Smart Manufacturing and the Secure Supply Chain (Part 1)

As MRP and ERP functions follow computing trends and start to migrate into the cloud, a fundamental question is being raised as to whether these are still the right tools to use in today’s modern Industry 4.0 driven factory, or whether these need to evolve, be enhanced, or even replaced in order to meet the more extreme requirements of operational flexibility, as well as cope with volatile material availability in the market.
