Improved thermal contact, “no messing” with pastes or greases

September 15, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
A thermal transfer sheet offers a high performance alternative to thermal pastes that is clean and convenient to use.

Arcol Resistors, a specialist resistor supplier, also has the TGR200 Thermal Transfer Sheet, which is a non-shrinking, 100% coverage, no-mess alternative to conventional thermal pastes that can be trimmed to required sizes with minimal wastage. The sheet is supplied as a flexible dry mat providing high performance heat transfer without the need for wasteful and messy assembly processes. The sheet offers fast, clean assembly and is capable of extended service life without degradation or shrinkage and, as it contains no oils, which also eliminates any risk of contamination.

An alternative to thermal compounds it is available shaped to suit industry-standard resistor packages or in cut lengths, rolls or sheets to best suit the end application and speed the assembly process. TGR200 is electrically conductive and ensures a thermally efficient transfer of heat between the mounted product and heat sink, has a nominal thickness of 0.2 mm (other thickness are available), thermal resistance of under 0.7 °C/W, thermal conductivity of 3.58 W/mK and is RoHS Compliant
