Keeping it together.
At the heart of innovative thermal engineering is a material that moves lots of heat with low temperature rise through the system. That requires solving all system constraints, not just heat.
Air is a terrible thermal conductor.
FLOW OF HEAT
Without a thermal interface material, air fills the gaps between heat source and heat sink, trapping heat and causing overheating.
Thermal management with Carbice.
FLOW OF HEAT
Carbice® Pad has the physical, mechanical, chemical, and electrical properties for a stable, flexible, long-lasting connection in the right assembly. It holds true over time and cycling and in outer space or other extreme environments.
Carbice delivers the best performance across any type of assembly.
FIG. C, D, E
Materials can exhibit uneven surfacing before, during, or after temperature cycling. Carbice Nanotube arrays adapt like a memory foam mattress to maintain connection.
Warping / Waving
FIG. F, G
Materials can change shape under the stresses of assembly. Carbice Nanotube arrays adapt and flex to maintain connection. The application and types of adhesives we use maintain that flexibility and never impede thermal conductance.
Carbice Pads can be structured to uniquely stack Carbice Nanotubes to connect heat sources and sinks across large, uneven topographies. Contact pressure can be engineered to maximize conductance at strategic locations like hotspots. The structures are modeled, simulated and tested for effectiveness in application.
Large surface areas
In some scenarios, heat sources exhibit different elevations—both across large and small surface areas. With our different levels of thickness, Carbice Pad has no problem making contact on complex, three-dimensional surfaces.
Multi-chip or gap filling
FIG. J, K, L
Carbice Nanotubes flex when compressed by temperature-induced expansion, mechanical stress from assembly, shock, or vibration. When the compressive load decreases, Carbice Nanotubes rebound to prevent air gaps that form with conventional TIMs. Thermal conductivity is never compromised.
Shock & Vibration
Carbice delivers predictable contact and reliable performance across all of the above scenarios—allowing engineers to solve the interface problem, not just the material problem.
