Graphite will improve thermal management while maintaining mechanical performance in a range of polymer compounds.
Manage conductivity with our graphite grades
If you’re producing plastics for automotive parts or white goods, thermal management is key. How do you reduce weight, improve corrosion resistance and boost thermal conductivity, all without escalating costs?
Adding graphite to polymer compounds is an excellent cost-effective way to boost thermal conductivity while maintaining a good balance of mechanical performance and processability.
Compared to standard metal-based technologies, graphite delivers improved thermal management for applications like headlamp heat-sinks, battery pack temperature regulation and thermal interface materials such as greases, adhesives and sealants.
Specific graphite grades increase thermal conductivity in specific directions, so we can formulate a grade for you that is designed to meet your requirements in terms of weight, price, conductivity and mechanical performance.
The use of polymers to achieve thermal conductivity offers substantial advantages compared to standard metal-based technologies in terms of:
- Weight reduction
- Corrosion resistance
- Design flexibility
- Manufacturing cost reduction
