PPI Thermal Management tapes

  • Posted on: August 25, 2016 - 3:54pm

PPI has developed a series of pressure sensitive thermal management tapes that combine the benefits of rapid and permanent component positioning with component protection. This is achieved through dissipation of heat from the sensitive components and devices throughout their lifetime. These tapes are used as thermal interfaces for bonding heat sinks onto electronics devices to protect them from damage due to overheating. These products can be die cut into a wide variety of forms which can offer considerable handling and application advantages when compared to the combination of thermally conductive greases and component clip holding techniques. PPI thermally conductive aluminium or polyimide based tapes are currently successfully used also in growing LED lighting industry.
