What Are Thermal Management Materials?
Thermal management materials are a range of different product types designed to effectively dissipate heat in electronic applications. They are composite systems that enable efficient heat transfer within components.
These solutions perform various functions within components. This includes carrying heat away from the components that generate it (also known as dissipating heat), offering stress relief from thermal cycling, providing electrical insulation, filling gaps, and offering long-term stability within components.
Thermal management materials have an important role to play as electronic devices become increasingly powerful and generate more heat. Without effective thermal management, manufacturers can face:
- System reliability drops
- Product performance failure
- Limited design advancement potential
- Degradation over time
