Tgard™ K52

Tgard™ K52

Thermally Conductive Insulator

High Thermal and Dielectric Performance Insulator Pad Tgard K52 is a high thermal and dielectric performance insulator pad consisting of a ceramic filled phase change compound coated on MT Kapton film. Tgard K52 phase change coating all but eliminates contact thermal resistance. The phase change coating melts at 52ºC and replaces all contact areas that contain air. TgardTM K52-1 is ideal for applications requiring the best thermal performing insulator material.

Features and Benefits

  • Resistant to tears and cut through
  • Multiple thickness layers
  • Phase Change allows for minimal contact resistance
