Thermally Conductive Insulators are designed to be clean, grease-free and flexible.
The combination of tough carrier material such as fibreglass and silicone rubber which is conformable,
provides the engineer with a more versatile material than mica or ceramics and grease.
Sil-Pads and Gap Pads minimise the thermal resistance from the case of a power semi-conductor to the heat sink. They electrically isolate the semi-conductor from the heat sink and have sufficient dielectric strength to withstand high voltage. They are also tough enough to resist puncture by the facing metal surface. With various materials available there is a Sil-Pad or Gap Pad matched to almost any application.
