Dow Corning has announced that Scheugenpflug will do live dispensing of its new Dow Corning® TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler at its booth at Bondexpo 2016, taking place from October 10-13 in Stuttgart, Germany.

New Thermal Gap Filler for Transportation Electronics

Scheugenpflug AG, a leading supplier of resin metering and dispensing systems for dispensing processes both at atmospheric pressure levels and in vacuum environments, will demonstrate its new Dos P016 TCA piston metering system dispensing the Dow Corning® TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler at booth 9212, Hall 9.

Dow Corning® TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler is Dow Corning’s new thermal gap filler for the transportation electronics industry, further completing the company’s gap filler portfolio with a lower thermal conductive solution for thermal conductivity of 1.5W/m.K.

To meet growing demand for easier processability and better thermal performance in automotive electronics applications, Dow Corning developed - and continues to broaden - a portfolio of gap filler materials. Its latest addition, Dow Corning® TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler, delivers thermal conductivity of 1.5W/m.K, improved dispensability and stable performance for more reliable electronics in harsh automotive under the hood environments.

"While dense, high-functioning electronic assemblies deliver greater value to automotive safety, reliability, performance and comfort, they are generating higher temperatures that can reduce device performance and reliability over time," said Brice Le Gouic, global market manager for Transportation Electronics, Dow Corning. "Building on our six-plus decades of expertise in the automotive industry, Dow Corning formulated TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler as lower thermal conductive gap filler that combines higher processability with enhanced thermal conductivity. More specifically, our goal was to enable customers to cost-effectively manage the rising heat in their next-generation electronics designs."

Properties of Dow Corning® TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler

  • A soft
  • Vibration dampening
  • Two-part silicone with excellent thixotropic properties that enable it to dispense easily, avoid slumping on vertical surfaces during assembly and – after cure – maintain its vertical stability even after long use. 

Dow Corning TC-4515 Thermally Conductive Gap Filler is available worldwide.

All Dow Corning® Gap Fillers can be dispensed directly from its original packaging with minimal to no additional process preparation. It is well-suited for automated dispensing using standard meter mix equipment. Scheugenpflug will be demonstrating this dispensing the new TC-4515 with its new Dos P016 TCA piston metering system that has been optimized for highly filled thermally conductive materials. Compared to the Dos P standard model the new dispenser achieves up to three times higher flow rates – at consistently high metering accuracy. Furthermore precision metering cylinders allow the output of reproducibly accurate material volumes and in 2C materials constant mixing ratios at all times.
