Shin-Etsu Silicones Launches CLG Series Gap Fillers with Improved Resistance Against Pump-Out for Advanced Thermal Management Electronics Applications.
Akron, OH−February 2018
In and effort to provide progressive options to thermal engineers in the growing electronics cooling market sector for silicone TIM (Thermal Interface Materials), Shin-Etsu Silicones of America, Inc. (SESA: A U.S. subsidiary of Shin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd., Japan) recently premiered its CLG Series single-component, pre-cured Gap Filler product line. SESAs CLG Series materials are ideal for a broad base of general electronics cooling applicationsoffering a wide range of thermal conductivity.
CLG SERIES PROFILE: (CLG-1500, CLG-2500, CLG-3500, CLG-4500)
The one-component CLG Gap Filler greases are simpler to use, requiring no mixing or use of a two-part meter-mix equipment system. Notably, the material does not need to cure after it is dispensed so there is no time-consuming waiting or heating involved to cure after dispensingand no resulting curing process by-products. The materials offer a low volatile content with excellent resistance to pump-out and creeping.
Featuring a gel-like consistency, the material is applicable on a myriad of surface shapeseasily filling voids between heat sources and heat sinks. By displacing the air from these nooks-and-crannies, a lower thermal resistance is achieved. Notably, the CLG Gap Filler material can be applied only where you need it, thereby minimizing waste. The materials can also be reworked because they do not adhere to substrates. The soft materials low hardness minimizes stress on delicate electronic components. Additionally, the viscosity allows for ease of dispensing, reduced process times, and there are no unique storage requirements.
According to SESAs Thermal Interface Materials Business Development Manager, Geoff Thyrum, As electronic devices shrink in size and expand in functionality, the requirements for thermal solutions are ever-increasing. The CLG Series economical pre-cured and performance advantages will allow us to optimize new and existing client applications in the growing electronics cooling market segments.
Ultimately, the CLG Series represents a great addtion to SESAs broad silicone TIM product line in North America, which includes products such as adhesives, soft pads, thermal greases, etc.
