EC360® PLATINUM SOFT 16,6W/mK Thermal pad
The EC360® PLATINUM SOFT series presents the high-end variant of high-performance thermal pads. The pads have best thermal conductivity of 16.6 W/mK, more than high-end thermal pastes and are suitable for a variety of applications.
This extra-soft variant with a low hardness of 65 Shore 00 has a putty-like consistency and is therefore highly flexible. Under pressure they will deform and adapt permanently to the surface they are applied to and will not spring back into their original shape.
Examples of applications are cooling of CPUs and GPUs (that are cooled by thermal pads), memory chips and other electrical components. They perform particularly well for water cooling systems and are easy to use. The pads are not adhesive, but stick a little, so they can be easily positioned.
It is the perfect solution for heat-transfer in adverse surface conditions when the use of thermal paste is unsuitable.
Handling is particularly safe, as the pads are electrically isolating and there is no risk of short-circuiting. Additionally, they can easily be cut using a scissor, which allows trimming to the perfect size for any surface.
- Clean surfaces from dirt and other possible residue. If applicable, isopropyl 90% alcohol is recommended to ensure a clean surface.
- Remove one of the protective layers and place the exposed side of the thermal pad facing the surface of the chip. Once positioned gently press on it to make it stick.
- Remove the second protective layer and install the heatsink.
