high-performance phase change material

Laird Technologies Thermal Products (formerly known as Thermagon) introduced a new high-performance phase change material, designated as T-pcm 583, for gaming and computing devices. This new substance meets the thermal resistance and reliability requirements needed for advanced applications such as microprocessors, chipsets, graphic processing chips and custom ASICs for next-generation consumer electronics.

T-pcm 583 is a non-electrically conductive film that is naturally tacky at room temperature and does not require additional adhesives or preheating for assembly, according to the company. The application pad begins to soften and flow at 50C, which fills the microscopic irregularities of both the component and thermal solution, to reduce thermal interface resistance.

T-pcm 583 is supplied in strips or rolls with a top-tabbed liner for easy application. Individually die cut shapes also are available. T-pcm 585 is priced at less than 7 cents per inch? in large volume applications.
