Never worked with indium foil and wondering, "What's all the hype about?" In many ways, indium foil is just another metal foil (like aluminum foil) with the typical properties metals exhibit. However, compared to o ther foils, indium foil has some cool characteristics worth recognition. These characteristics are what lend indium foil to be a material of choice as a thermal interface material.
- Softness and Malleability
- Thermal Conductivity
- Low Thermal Resistance
- Performance Insensitive to Bondline Thickness
- Application Versatility - Solder paste, preforms, ribbon
- Automated Application
- Reliability - No Pump out
- Resistance to Oxidation
