Fuji Polymer Industries Co. has released Sarcon 30HR, a silicone-based thin film that exhibits a 1.7 W/m°K thermal conductivity when placed between a heat source and a nearby heatsink. This thermal interface medium eliminates air gaps between components. The increased surface contact can measurably improve the cooling performance of a heatsink.
Sarcon 30HR has a thermal resistance of .42 °Cin2/W and is recommended for applications with operational temperatures that range from -60°C to +180°C. The V-0 flame-retardant thin film is available in roll widths up to 85mm.
Fujipoly America Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fuji Polymer Industries Co., Ltd. of Japan. It specializes in the fabrication of silicone rubber technology.
