Phase Change Materials in a Liquid Product

The PowerstrateXtreme Dispensable (PSX-D) phase change material in liquid form offers many of the usability and throughput advantages of thermal greases without the drawbacks inherent with some thermal grease applications. As a paste medium, Henkel’s PSX-D alleviates the challenges associated with phase change films and the shortcomings of thermal greases by incorporating phase change performance into a liquid product. Because the material is a paste, PSX-D’s thickness can be adjusted depending on the requirement, offering manufacturers considerable flexibility as only one material, not various films of different thicknesses, must be procured. The material can be stenciled, needle-dispensed, screen-printed or manually applied onto a heat sink or other surfaces, eliminating the need for additional equipment investment and improving throughput. PSX-D has been optimized as a TIM2 material for use between microprocessors, IGBT, FBDIMM/Memory, GPU, multichip modules, ASICs and their active heat sinks. The material is also re-workable and repeatable. Henkel, Irvine, CA,
