Thermal Gasket

Laird’s Graphite‐over‐Foam (GOF), GOF2000 thermal gasket, provides thermal transfer performance in the form of a traditional wrapped compressible foam gasket. GOF2000 combines the thermal transfer performance of the Tgon™ 9000 synthetic graphite outside wrap and the repeatable compression and rebound of a foam core. GOF2000 utilizes Laird LSF series silicone foam allowing for a UL V0 flammability rating.

Features and Benefits

  • High Deflection
  • High thermal transfer rate especially suitable for large gap sizes
  • Repeatable compression and rebound cycles
  • Lightweight
  • Low force thermal interface
  • Abrasion resistant exterior
  • Ease of manufacturing for high volume
  • Use multiple 5mm width columns to lower overall thermal resistance
  • High operating temperature suitability and UL V0 flammability rating
