Specialty Materials

Certain applications are uniquely demanding and require specialized properties of thermally conductive materials.

Low or Controlled Volatility Materials

In some applications, low molecular weight volatiles from thermally conductive materials can result in problems. This can range from volatiles re-condensing onto surfaces that negatively impact adhesion or fogging optical sensors or can lead to decomposition of volatiles under high voltage or high temperature conditions.  For these cases, special low volatility intermediates are used to formulate Dow Corning’s low volatility products. 

Flame Resistance

The materials used in certain applications are required to meet special criteria such as those from Underwriters Laboratories for flammability. There are thermally conductive materials, which possess a UL 94V or HB flammability classification.

Controlled Bondline Thickness Materials

In some applications it is necessary to maintain a specific bondline thickness to avoid components being misaligned or to avoid squeezing all the material out of a joint if too much pressure is applied when placing a device onto a substrate. For these applications Dow Corning can supply thermally conductive materials containing rigid spacer beads.
