New Thermal Gel Benefits Consumer and Automotive Applications

New Thermal Gel Benefits Consumer and Automotive Applications, Gel45, Parker ChomericsCareful management of thermal interfaces is crucial to maintaining the reliability and extending the life of electronic devices and equipment. As each new electronic product generation requires higher power in smaller packages, the challenges associated with thermal management become more and more intense.

THERM-A-GAP GEL45 is Parker Chomerics' latest high performance, fully cured, dispensable thermal gel, designed for dispensing over heat generating electronic modules to transfer the heat from the component.

The gel is purpose-designed to eliminate time consuming hand assembly, decrease installation costs and reduce the complexity of customer manufacturing and purchasing functions. It is especially suited to automotive ECUs (electronic control units), consumer electronics, flat panel displays, power supplies, semiconductors, memory modules, power modules and microprocessors/graphics processors.

Chomerics GEL45 is a silicone-based cross linked compound loaded with thermally conductive fillers which form a low-modulus gel. The material is supplied fully cured, eliminating the need for mixing and post-application heating and curing operations. The highly conformable gel provides low thermal impedance at thin and thick gaps, allowing use of common heat spreaders. Another benefit of GEL45 is that it deflects easily under very low compressive forces, which minimizes the stress on the component, and therefore reduces failures. 

THERM-A-GAP GEL45 is easy to dispense for compatibility with high speed automated processes and offers a high tack surface. Furthermore, it can accommodate a variety of bond line thicknesses (0.089mm minimum) for successful application to multiple devices.  

Here are the 6 main advantages of using Chomerics GEL45.

  • Offers excellent price-to-performance ratio
  • Proven long term reliability, especially in harsh operating environments
  • Low thermal impedance
  • Easy to dispense
  • High thermal conductivity of 4.5 W/m-K
  • Supplied fully cured

Chomerics has a successful history of providing thermal materials expertise and commitment to developing new, high performance materials to meet the challenges of today’s design engineers.

Gel45 is supplied in a variety of convenient ready-to-dispense containers. Please contact Parker Chomerics for more information.
