Technical buyers and product designers have a choice of materials for heat sink gaskets. Learn about the advantages of thermally-conducive silicone coated fabrics, and how Elasto Proxy creates custom solutions for thermal management challenges.
Computers, telecommunications equipment, and electronic devices generate significant amounts of heat. Unless this heat is dissipated, component damage and system failure can result. By establishing an effective thermal path between a heat-generating component and a metallic heat sink, thermal interface materials dissipate heat and support product life and performance. Some materials, such as thermally-conductive silicone fabrics, also provide properties that strengthen product designs. Continue reading
