Introduction to Thermal Interface Materials

Review our introductory discussion on thermal interface materials. TIMs are any materials inserted between two parts in order to enhance the thermal coupling between these components. Most applications involve heat dissipation of the system. When two surfaces are interfaced, rough surfaces create insulating air gaps between them. These gaps create thermal barriers to heat transfer due to the low thermal conductivity of air.

Heat will transfer more rapidly because of the presence of a material that has higher thermal conductivity than air in the interface. Thus, a TIM helps to minimize resistance of heat flow into, through and out of an interface. Read our white paper and also watch our webinar
