Bergquist extends phase-change thermal materials range with high temperature, high conductivity variant
The Bergquist Company has extended its range of phase-change thermal management materials by introducing Hi-Flow® 650P, specified for continuous use up to 150°C and featuring high thermal conductivity, electrical isolation, polyimide reinforcement, and natural tack to aid assembly.
Hi-Flow 650P is a new member of Bergquist’s versatile Hi-Flow family, which presents a selection of isolating and non-isolating materials as a clean and easier handling alternative to thermal grease at the interfaces between components and heatsinks. Hi-Flow materials are solid at room temperature but change phase at higher temperatures to wet-out the interface fully without overflowing. Hi-Flow 650P changes phase at 52°C.
With its 150°C temperature rating, Hi-Flow 650P is suited to use in automotive assemblies such as electronic control units (ECUs) in under-the-hood locations, as well as other types of equipment operating in harsh conditions. With high thermal conductivity of 1.5W/m-K, this new formula assures efficient removal of heat energy from the sensitive semiconductor device into the attached heatsink. The polyimide reinforcing film provides high resistance to cut through and has high dielectric strength.
Hi-Flow 650P is available as sheets, rolls or in custom sizes, in thicknesses from 0.114mm to 0.140mm. Bergquist recommends the use of spring clips to maintain constant pressure for optimum thermal performance at the interfaces between the component and heatsink.
The Bergquist Company is a privately held, family owned business that began in the 1960s as an electronic components distributor in the upper Midwest of the USA. Today, Bergquist consists of two divisions: Thermal Products and User Interfaces.
