Thermal interface materials (TIMs) serve as the thermal path between a device and a heat sink. In automotive environments, extreme thermal stability is required to support the long product lives and warranties. So TIMs are critical to the thermal design of EV and HEV power modules where the material can account for up to 50% of the thermal resistance.
Honeywell has developed TIMs that are based on Phase Change Materials (PCMs) with innovative polymer technology and advanced filler systems. The company says its TIMs offer stable thermal impedance, high thermal conductivity, optimal surface wetting & low contact resistance and high manufacturability.
