ERJ staff report (DS)
Tokyo -- Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. said it has developed and begun to market a thermally conductive silicone double-sided adhesive tape, TC-20SAS, which provides both superior heat dissipation and long-term reliability.
Currently, the double-sided silicone adhesive tape products on the market are mostly acrylic resin types. These acrylic resin-type products are limited in their applications due to the deterioration that occurs in adhesive layers at high temperatures. Shin-Etsu's newly developed adhesive tape product is a silicone type product, and accordingly, it can be used in a wide-temperature range of -40ºC ~+150ºC and is also superior in long term reliability.
In addition to this new thermally conductive, double-sided silicone adhesive tape, Shin-Etsu Chemical has a line up of various other types of thermally conductive silicone materials such as rubber sheet, grease, gel and liquid rubber products that possess excellent adhesiveness. Depending on the application, it is possible to meet various heat-dissipation requirements, and Shin-Etsu will continue to pursue the development of products to meet the future needs of a market that will have even more sophisticated needs in the coming years.
