Other thermal adhesives from Momentive offer the process convenience of 1-part condensation cure with moderate heat dissipation. Potential applications include board assemblies and sealants in power modules and sensors.

SilCool* Silicone Adhesive - Addition Cure

The SilCool series silicone adhesives from Momentive Performance Materials offer 1-part, heat curable materials that bond well to a wide variety of substrates without the need for primers. They offer outstanding thermal conductivity, low thermal resistance, excellent dielectric properties, and low stress. SilCool adhesives are excellent candidates for applications presented with  heat management challenges that arise from the higher frequencies, power, and miniaturization in today’s electronic devices. Able to efficiently conduct heat, these materials have shown to be valuable additions to semiconductor packages that incorporate heat generating chips, heat spreaders, and heat sinks (TIM1 & TIM2).

(Charts) Thermal Resistance is proportional to the thickness of the material through which the heat must travel. Increases in pressure during the component assembly process are known to contribute to reductions in thickness of the thermal interface (BLT), and subsequently, reduced thermal resistance.

Silicone Adhesive - Condensation Cure

Momentive Performance Materials offers a range of thermally conductive condensation cure adhesives and sealants. These materials cure to form an elastic rubber when exposed to atmospheric moisture at room temperatures, eliminating the need for heat ovens. The result is a unique combination of process efficiency and excellent thermal conductivity. Our condensation-cure adhesives and sealants are commonly applied in board assembly and sensor applications that require moderate thermal management performance and ease of use.
