Silicone Rubber Thermal Interface Materials; Applications and Performance Considerations

Highlighting that attractive combination of thermal, physical, and electrical properties could make a material as an ideal choice to be used as a thermal interface material (TIM), this paper discusses the performance of a TIM in transistor and photovoltaic applications. It evaluates two TIMs from Arlon and a leading competitor consisting of silicone rubber, an extending filler system, and a fiberglass support fabric, by comparing their thermal impedance as a function of pressure, shear strength, shear modulus, and dielectric breakdown strength. Figures illustrating side view of a transistor/heatsink, and thermal impedance as a function of pressure for Arlon B and competitor B are included. Paper concludes that Arlon A and B TIM's offer excellent thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties, and lists low thermal impedance, high shear strength, and good electrical isolation as the benefits offered by them as both adhesives and pads.
