Offers tighter flow rate control and higher thermal conductivity, all at a competitive price point
High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, UK, 9th September 2020 - The Chomerics division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announces the launch of THERM-A-GAP GEL 37, the next generation of single component, thermally conductive dispensable materials.
THERM-A-GAP GEL 37 has been specifically designed to limit the batch-to-batch variations typically found in thermal dispensable materials. With a thermal conductivity of 3.7 W/m-K, its tighter, more controlled flow rate of 30g per minute, 50% higher than Parker’s GEL 30, vastly improves dispensing in high volume applications.
As a conformable, single component dispensable compound, GEL 37 has superior long-term stability and reliable performance. It does not require post cure, which helps to eliminate time consuming hand assembly and decrease installation costs. THERM-A-GAP GEL 37 will easily conform to irregular shapes without excessive force on components and also features a minimum bond line thickness of 0.1 mm.
A variety of vessel sizes and configurations are available to suit any application, from hand dispensed syringes, to Semco® and Nordson EFD tubes and large tubs for high volume applications. It is available in weights ranging from 30g to over 23kg.
THERM-A-GAP GEL 37 also features a long 18-month shelf life and effective sag resistance to help maintain the shape of the material during the curing process.
“We have heard time and time again from our customers, specifically in the telecom/5G and automotive in-cabin market, that there’s need for a tighter flow, high performance dispensable thermal material at a competitive price point. We feel that this product is an excellent choice and fits the needs of the market perfectly,” said Brian Mahoney, global business unit manager for Parker Chomerics.
THERM-A-GAP GEL 37 is manufactured in Hudson, NH, and is available for immediate sampling, prototyping, and production.
