Central Coating Now Offers Dispensable Thermally Conductive Gels

Dispensable Thermally Conductive Gels Central Coating is now dispensing the latest in Thermally Conductive Gels, featuring Therm-a-GapTM materials. Thermally conductive materials eliminate air gaps between heat generating components and heat spreaders. Because these thermally conductive materials have a greater thermal conductivity than the air it's eliminating, the heat flow resistance across the mating surface decreases and the junction temperature is reduced. Reducing the temperature will increase the life cycle of the components and the device you are trying to cool. Thermal gels are silicone based materials that are loaded with thermally conductive fillers. These materials are fully cured single component compounds that can be robotically dispensed over heat generating components. These materials are highly conformable and have low thermal impedance ...

Central Coating Offers Latest Generation in FIP Gasketing

Central Coating is now offering the latest generation in FIP Gasketing using the TriShield dispensing technology. The benefits of Trishield® include lower compression force, shorter production time and lower cost. The newest material is called Trishield Soft®, which is a modified version of traditional Trishield® gasket. It is co-dispensed with both conductive and non-conductive material. The technique, however, remains unchanged as a precise string of electrically-conductive silicon rubber is dispensed onto a carrier and is then formed into the characteristic shape. Central Coating employs a unique technology to apply the material in a triangular and wave shaped gasket. Materials applied include silicone nickel, nickel graphite and soft nickel graphite. Trishield®Soft is available in gasket heights of 1.2 - 2.5 mm, ...
