The development of a silicone-free thermal interface material based on graphene nanocomposites achieving low-cost, thermal conductivity of up to 15 W/mK that can be easily applied as part of current standard processes.

The Aim of the Project

The aim is to develop & commercialise high performance, silicone-free thermal interface materials (TIMs) for enhanced heat management in electronic and electrical applications. The objective is to achieve thermal conductivity up to 15 W/m.K, much higher than currently achievable, that can be cost-effectively applied using conventional techniques. Global market sales are aimed at: PC/ server, Insulated-Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) and automotive battery applications.

Silicone free

The benefit of this is that this interface material will not "bleed"

High Thermal Conductivity of 15W/mK

When managing heat transfer in electronics a high thermal conductivity in interface materials is imperitive.

High Formability

Easy to apply and mitigates excessive contact resistance
