EC360® GRAPHITE-2 20W/mK Thermal pad
EC360® GRAPHITE-2 introduces highly conductive thermal pads made from natural graphite, the ideal alternative to high-end thermal pastes. The graphite layer is ultra thin with a thickness of just 0.05 mm Paired with an unmatched thermal conductivity of 450 W/mK on the X-Y axis and 20 W/mK on the Z axis, it makes it the perfect thermal interface material.
While thermal paste requires a lot of practice for applying the correct amount and spreading it evenly, installing a graphite sheet is easy. It comes thinner than any thermal paste can be spread and at the same time is more conductive, just place it and install the heatsink.
Furthermore, it is highly durable, as it does not contain any liquids it virtually lasts forever. It can not dry out, does not need to be reapplied and will not degrade over time. Additionally it does not leave a messy surface, is easy to remove and can even be reused.
Please note, while it is safe to apply, it must be handled with caution. As graphite is electrically conductive, take special care that it does not get in contact with electric components and avoid short-circuits.
The graphite sheet can be conveniently 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.
- Place the thermal pad on the chip.
- Once it is positioned, install the heatsink.
