Reinforced Gap Filler
The THERMA-A-GAP™ F574 thermally conductive elastomer is designed for efficiently transferring heat from components into various heat spreading devices. The material's thermal impedance ranges from 0.6° to 2.6°C-in2/W for thickness from 0.02 to 0.10 inch. The material consists of a soft silicone elastomer loaded with a blend of ceramic particles and for mechanical strength, the material is reinforced with an internal fiberglass mesh. Its flexible nature allows it to blanket highly uneven surfaces across components and circuit boards. The material has a tacky surface and does not require any mounting adhesives. Sizes: standard sheets are 9" x 9" or 18" x 18". Price: 25¢/square inch.
