P-THERM® Heat Spreaders
Heat spreaders are constructed to isotropically dissipate heat quickly using high thermal conductivity metal foils or graphite. Polymer Science designs P-THERM® heat spreaders featuring thin profiles of aluminum foil, copper foil and synthetic graphite.
As compact electronics become ubiquitous, the demands of the components are increasing. Some thermal management materials like phase change materials and gap fillers are not suitable where a concentrated heat in a compact design is a concern. The X Y heat dissipation and low-profile construction make heat spreaders an ideal candidate for this thermal management challenge. Within smartphones, computers, solar panels and tablets, heat spreaders help manage hot spots created by high usage, CPUs, batteries and other components.
In today’s intricate electronics, some of the most critical components may quickly overheat without proper thermal management. Polymer Science offers a number of P-THERM® heat spreaders to solve manufacturing issues. Our configurations include copper foil and aluminum foil heat spreaders with thermally conductive acrylic adhesives, and synthetic graphite heat spreaders. Conductive acrylic pressure sensitive acrylic (PSA) secures the thin conductive heat spreader material to the heat source for efficient heat dissipation. Our heat spreaders offer a range of tack, adhesive and cohesive strength. Polymer Science helps companies of all sizes solve thermal management problems.
P-THERM® Heat Spreaders
As solar technology continues to evolve, solar panels benefit from the use of heat spreaders. Highly conductive materials dissipate heat using thin materials.
P-THERM® heat spreaders benefit shrinking housings of computers. These thin materials require less space than other materials. Highly conductive materials can quickly transfer energy in compact spaces.
Smartphones often get hot from heavy usage. As these devices become more ubiquitous, the demands increase. When multiple applications are running, CPUs, chips, screens and batteries produce heat. Among Polymer Science’s many thermal management materials, heat spreaders help dissipate heat quickly across the device to reduce hot spots and protect expensive components.
Polymer Science’s P-THERM® materials are used throughout tablets, gaming systems and other sensitive electronic devices. Gap fillers, dispensables, adhesives and heat spreaders all offer unique qualities to aid designs. Heat spreaders offer quick dissipation and a range of tacks, adhesion and cohesive strengths to suit manufacturing and design requirements.
Navigation & Infotainment Systems
Within vehicles, wearables and infotainment electronics, P-THERM® heat spreaders aid in the protection of components. Dissipation of heat allows devices to operate at the optimal temperature and prevents breakdown. The quality and durability of our materials helps manufacturers build confidently.
