Thermal Applications for Home Appliances

Momentive Performance Materials provides leading-edge silicone technologies to help meet performance and productivity challenges presented by a wide range of electronic applications. Long term, reliable protection of sensitive electronic components is essential to many applications today. Increasingly small systems and rising circuit densities have resulted in higher operating temperatures, driving demand for high-performance solutions for heat dissipation.

Glass Top Kitchen Cooking Ranges 

Top end cooking ranges have low profile, glass cooking tops.  Glass top plates are bonded with silicone adhesives that are inherently heat resistant. Products such as our SnapSil* TN3005 silicone adhesive are excellent candidates to consider for applications where primerless adhesion and fast tack-free time are required.


Coffee Makers 

Heat from a coffee maker’s heating element needs to be transferred to the base plate to keep the coffee warm, which requires a thermally conductive material to fill the gap between the heating element and metallic base while a conventional thermal grease is used to provide the heat path. Products such as SilCool* TIG1000& SilCool* TIG2000 thermally conductive silicone grease, are excellent candidates due to their thermal conductivity, dielectric properties, excellent workability and minimal weight loss at elevated temperatures.


Steam Irons

High end irons require not only heat resistance, but steam resistance for iron plate sealing applications.  TSE3260 is a one-component, flowable, heat curable silicone adhesive used  for such high temperature applications. TSE3260 can adhere well to a variety of substrates, such as metals, plastics, ceramics and glass without the use of a primer.
