The feature and application of thermal tape.

Thermal tape, with good thermal conductivity, strong adhesive and low thermal resistance in one which has these features can replace thermal grease and mechanical fastening while applying. To go a step further, the temperature of electronics devices will go down after thermal tape fill the uneven interface between the heat source and metal products (ex: heat sink).

Usually, there are two main type of thermal tape, one is Acrylic based pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA), the other is Silicone based pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). Acrylic one is suitable be placed with metal and ceramic products, and silicone one is suitable be placed with plastic products. At the same time, they also can be capable with fiberglass mesh or Polymide as extra reinforcement carrier to increase the ratio of stiffness and break down voltage.

Thermal tape is an ideal thermal material for attaching small, or long and thin dimension of electrical components, due to the adhesive and thermal conductivity, especially the tiny chip on PCB, LED lighting, or panel application.

 

In previously electronic devices, there are barely requirement about thermal solution for chip. However, with the improvement of technology, the electronics devices contains more and better fancy function currently, but smaller volume. Then RD engineer start using small heat sink to solve the overheat issue, that’s also the common application of thermal tape. Obviously, thermal requirement is increasing day by day for sure. Meanwhile, T-global technology will keep providing the latest and best thermal solution for customer!

 

The instruction of thermal tape:

1.Measure the dimension you need, and cut into the specific size. Or provide the dimension to your consultant then we will cut into specific shape accordingly.

2.Remove the PET film carefully, and attach smoothly and gently on the interface you choose.(Heat source or heat sink)

3.Using fixed frame before the glue of tape affects and sticks two materials if the volume of heat sink is heavy or big.

Except thermal conductivity and adhesion, the hardness, working temperature, break down voltage and reinforcement carrier are also the important factors for choosing thermal tape.

What's the application of thermal tape?

Feature: Superior adhesion and thermal conductivity, easy to assemble.

Application: LED lighting, Panel, ic etc.

 

The advantage of thermal tape:

1.Easy to assemble and bond the chip and heat sink than thermal grease, and decline the defection rate for covering uneven thermal grease on design.

2.Another assembling way for choice, except the screw and push pin to fix the components.
