Momentive Launches Thermally Conductive Silicones for Use in LED Manufacturing and Assembly

Published on 2010-11-11. Author : SpecialChem

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Momentive Performance Materials has launched line of thermally conductive silicones which can used in LED manufacturing and assembly. The new products could help LED lighting manufacturers in solving the ongoing challenges of heat transfer and dissipation in LED lighting assemblies.

The Momentive's TIA thermal gels are available in a variety of conductivity levels, viscosities and curing profiles to meet a wide range of design needs. The TIA series is an excellent candidate to consider for use in this type of application, as the liquid-dispensed gels can fill gaps between the driver and surrounding fixture and cure at either room temperature.

The TIA thermal adhesives provide excellent mechanical adhesion. The products include TIA250R and TIA600R and available in room-temperature and heat-accelerated cure formulations. The products adhere well to a range of substrates. The TIA products are all liquid-dispensed, allowing for an exact amount of material to be applied to precise locations and assembled creating a thin bond line. The products could be considered for use to create a thermal path between the LED board and heat sink.

Momentive also provides a comprehensive line of InvisiSil LED silicone materials that are excellent candidates to consider for use in helping address performance and reliability challenges in LED packaging. InvisiSil materials are available either as dispensable encapsulants or as moldable grades for injection, compression, or transfer molding systems. Momentive also provides silicone adhesives that can be used to bond lighting components, such as globe caps. These adhesives resist heat and yellowing over a wide range of operating conditions.
