Press Releases

thermal interface materialThermal Management is the hottest topic in electronics at the moment.  Effective control of heat is an increasing concern among today's electronic device manufacturers and, as products become more compact and powerful the heat generated is more intense. Too much heat can reduce service life and affect reliability so the need to dissipate damaging heat effectively is greater than ever. Here we highlight the latest thermal management silicones from Momentive, Techsil's thermal interface materials and a Case Study with an LED manufacturer whose use of two products improved the assembly process and heat dissipation within their LED lighting units.
