IRVINE, Calif. Jason Brandi was appointed to global product manager for phase change and thermal adhesives within the electronics group of Henkel. The company noted the increasing importance of thermal management as part of the promotion.
Brandi will introduce new technologies and optimize the company's current product line on a global level. Specifically, he will investigate possibilities with new filler technologies and other mediums to enhance thermal conductivity and flow characteristics to yield superior thermal impedance, and address fragmented processes in the electronics market. Managing heat dissipation in advanced devices is critical, Brandi explained. Shrinking package footprints and increasing functionality must be offset by electronics manufacturers to control operating temperatures in end products, he added.
Prior to assuming the role, Brandi held various positions within the company, including technical sales supervisor and thermal materials specialist. He will be based at Henkel's U.S. headquarters and report to Malcolm Warwick, Ph.D.
