Thermal Interface Materials
The dissipation of heat is the key to maintaining longevity and reliability of semiconductor and power devices. Indium Corporation is a leader in the development of both solder and metal-based thermal interface materials (TIM) for a wide variety of applications.
All of our thermal interface materials are metal-based, which means they have a very high conductivity as compared to polymer-based thermal interface materials. Indium metal, for example, has a conductivity of 86W/mK and is 4 times softer than lead. Its ductility and thermal conductivity make it ideal as a compressible thermal interface material.
The Heat-Spring product has a pattern that improves the contact between two surfaces to dissipate the heat from the generating device to the heat sink.
HSMF and HSMF-OS
HSMF and HSMF-OS are non-silicon based polymer materials that can be used in less demanding thermal conditions.
Since metals are the best conductors of heat, Indium Corporation has a wide range of solders that can be reflowed for attachment and also provide good thermal conductivity.
