Many applications call for TIM that can easily be placed on a chip, on a lid or perhaps just against a heat source and a cooling solution contact plate. We developed a metal TIM which would work as a compressible Interface Solution for such an application. Our pressure range is 35psi to 100+ psi.

An SMA-TIM made of indium offers uniform thermal resistance at lower applied stresses in compressed interfaces. The malleability of indium minimizes surface resistance and increases heat flow. Our patented Heat-Spring® technology will further reduce the thermal resistance.
Indium's line of high-end thermal interface materials delivers superior performance over time. As SMA-TIM products are made of metal, they cannot experience pump out problems even under power cycling. The Heat-Spring® material, which does not contain silicone, will conform to surface disparities over time, thereby reducing thermal resistance through the life of the TIM. Due to its solid state, the SMA-TIM also resists bake out.

My colleagues and I have had several conversations with customers wanting to use indium against an aluminum surface, either for the sake of creating a compression seal or thermal path. A troubling number of those applications come to a screeching halt because somebody somewhere has indicated that…
Indium preforms offer very precise volumes of solder, and are cut to fit some very interesting bond-line shapes. Some examples of preform applications are: bonding lids on sealed packages, thermal interfaces, and custom cut cryogenic sealing gaskets. We even know how to make a boring old rectangular…
