Basics of Processing for Fabricated Films and Pads

Dow Corning® Fabricated Film and Pad Thermal Interface Materials can be supplied in two basic forms, rolls or pre-cut shapes. Rolls are supplied in specified widths and thickness. The processing equipment then needs to have the capability of cutting (stamping) the shape required for your application. After stamping, the material is applied manually or by using pick-and-place equipment. Dow Corning can also supply pads already cut to your specified shape, eliminating any need for a stamping process. 

Dow Corning® Thin Thermal and Gap Filler Thermal Interface Materials are supplied ready to use and are applied at room temperature without the need for heating. The release liner is simply removed from one side of the film and the film is applied to the substrate. 

Dow Corning® Phase Change Thermal Interface Materials are solid when applied at room temperature. When heated above 50°C the material becomes a liquid. When cooled to room temperature, it resolidifies. Mechanical clamping is required to hold assemblies in place.

For assistance in designing a process tailored to the needs of your application, contact Dow Corning’s technical experts in the Application Center.
