Product Description

  • HSMF

    HSMF thermal interface material is a metal/polymer hybrid technology designed to incorporate some of the benefits of both technologies. The polymer portion exhibits very high compliance and some amount of tackiness. This helps to achieve a low interfacial resistance. The metal portion is high thermal conductivity improving the overall performance of the system. This material resists pump-out and bake-out, performs better over time, and is easy to use. The standard HSMF materials are well suited for TIM2 applications while the OS version is specifically designed for use in burn-in and test applications.

Product Description

  • HSMF-OS

    Thermal interface material performance is crucial for burn-in applications. Ease of use and reliability are key factors as well. HSMF-OS is not designed for high-demand thermal applications as its thermal resistance is not that of a metallic TIM, such as an indium HSK product. However, it does have distinct attributes that address industry challenges, making it an excellent choice for many applications.

Product Specification

  • Adhesive Properties One of the challenges associated with a burn-in TIM material is attachment methods. In some cases, adhesives/tapes can be used or fixturing is applied to hold the TIM in place. This can be both cumbersome, costly or have an adverse impact on performance. HSMF-OS has inherent adhesive properties that allow for hand placement, removing the need for additional steps and fixtures. The table below illustrates the material’s ability to retain adhesion strength.
  • High-Insertion Capability HSMF-OS is designed for high-insertion capability. The aluminum layer is the interface with the component being tested. Given aluminum’s tensile strength of approximately 90MPa and a soft compliant polymer backing, this provides a configuration with ”designed in” insertion survivability. HSMF products come with a release liner to protect the polymer layer. Be sure to remove the release liner before placement.
