Silicone advantages over polyurethanes, epoxies and other competitive materials
  • Silicone dielectric gels show greater durability, better resistance to stress from thermal cycling and less water absorption than polyurethanes.
  • Silicone RTV and hot-melt adhesives outperform epoxies and polyurethanes with better elongation and flexibility to handle thermal expansion.
  • Silicones cause less stress on electronic components during thermal cycling than epoxies and polyurethanes.
  • Silicone thermal interface materials offer a superior combination of thermal conductivity, dielectric strength and low thermal stress compared to competitive materials.
  • Silicones can simplify processing and speed production compared to polyurethanes and epoxies.
