Who: Matthew Lindberg, Momentive Performance Materials

Title: Thermal Intterface Material (TIM)


 Presentation Abstract:Thermal Interface Material (TIM)

A thermal interface material (TIM) is one that is able to conduct heat. Typically, thermally conductive materials are used as an interface in the pathway between a source of heat, and a heat sink designed to draw heat away from the source. Silicone TIM products are often used because of their ability to operate in extreme environments and their low modulus. With electronics becoming smaller and power requirements on the rise, increased heat in a concentrated area is becoming more prevalent than ever. It is therefore necessary to better understand silicone TIM materials to determine which forms will best suit your particular application.
