Curing of Wet Dispensed Thermal Interface Materials

Thermally Conductive Compounds are non-curing grease-like one-part materials that do not require mixing or a cure process.

Thermally Conductive moisture cure materials are one-part products that cure at room temperature by reacting with moisture in the surrounding air. Moderate heat up to 60°C can accelerate the cure, but higher temperatures are not recommended. In very dry climates, it may be necessary to humidify the air to get proper cure. Some products will skin over in a few minutes, but typically they require several hours for complete cure.
Some thermally conductive adhesives, encapsulants, and gels are supplied as either one-part or two-part products that require heat to cure after being applied. They are typically cured in either batch or conveyor ovens. Cure time and temperature varies depending on the product chosen. Cure temperatures can range from 100-150°C with cure times typically a few minutes to an hour.

Due to the wide variety of types of thermally conductive materials available, users should determine the proper curing conditions from the product datasheets or consult a Dow Corning representative.
