For manufacturers with a preference for traditional thermally conductive grease compounds, Henkel has several RoHS-compliant formulations. Used in high-performance applications where a small bondline thickness is essential for high thermal performance, Henkel's Bergquist and Loctite brand thermally conductive greases offer immediate functionality upon application. In addition, greases have a tendency to compensate for voids easily, so they are a particularly viable solution for devices that have flatness or coplanarity issues.

Available in cartridges or bulk containers, Henkel’s thermal greases include high-performance, high-temperature reliability, silicone, silicone-free and water-cleanable formulas.

Thermal Interface Compounds (TIC)

Henkel’s BERGQUIST line of thermally conductive thermal interface compounds (TIC) will flow under assembly pressure to wet-out the thermal interface surfaces and produce very low thermal impedance. TIC products are designed for use between a high-end computer processor and a heat sink or other high watt density applications.


The thermal interface grease compound (TIC) portfolio has diverse thermal characteristics. Key criteria to consider when selecting TIC products include:

  • Viscosity
  • Volume resistivity
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Thermal performance
  • Filler size


Thermally conductive greases are ideal for high-watt density applications.
Primary benefits include:

  • Low interfacial resistance
  • Low thermal impedance
  • Dripping resistance
  • Ideally suited to screen printing applications
  • No post “cure” conditioning required
  • Perfect wet-out
  • Lowest possible interfacial resistance                                                                                                                                                                                                                    


Thermal interface compounds can be sourced with application-specific options and containers.

Alternatives to Thermal Grease

Henkel’s HI-FLOW Phase Change materials are not only an effective alternative for thermal greases, their thixotropic characteristics ensure they are solid at room temperature and won’t flow out of an interface at operational temperature.
