KERATHERM® are highly flexible products comprising thermally conductive and electrically insulating single or multi-component polymers filled with ceramic or heat conducting materials. When mechanically reinforced by the incorporation of fibreglass or other materials, KERATHERM® offers the user a versatile product that is superior in many aspects to conventional ceramic or mica discs.

Advantages and Properties

KERATHERM®- heat-conducting films are characterized by their high thermal conductivity and good electrical insulation properties.

In contrast to discs made of mica, aluminum or polyamide, KERATHERM® can be used without a heat- conducting compound.

Compared to the thermal com-pounds still frequently used, KERATHERM® does not dry out during continuous use hence retaining its good thermal conductivity properties over the years.

By using KERATHERM® products, mounting problems such as smearing and assembly errors can be avoided.

Silicone-based KERATHERM® facilitates component mounting thanks to their self-adhesive properties.

An optionally available single-sided adhesive coating also allows long-term attachment, even up-side down.
