GrafTech can custom design and thermally model heat sinks with any type of base design: copper base/graphite fin; copper base with heat pipes/graphite fin; aluminum base/graphite fin; and aluminum base with heat pipes/graphite fin. GrafTech heat sinks utilizing eGraf HS-400 material, a composite of natural graphite, feature weight advantages over traditional heat sink options. With a density of 1.9 g/cm3, the material is 28 percent lighter than aluminum and 78 percent lighter than copper.
