Materials keep LEDs cool

EP&T Magazine   


FABRICO Range of converted thermal management materials for LED applications, consisting of adhesive-backed die-cut parts, act in consort with heat sinks to dissipate unwanted heat to ensure proper LED performance. Thermal interface materials may include conductive adhesives, greases, tapes, ceramic and metal-filled elastomers (also called ‘gap fillers’), coated fabrics, or phase-change materials. Materials meet specifications for surface flatness of the substrate and heat sink, thickness of the interface, and mounting pressure. Converted thermal transfer parts may offer added benefits such as electrical insulation, EMI shielding, and environmental sealing.
