With the continuous development of science and technology, there are many types of materials used in electronic products, and they are widely used in various aspects. Among them, silicon thermal pad is a filler with strong thermal conductivity and good physical inertia, so it will not short-circuit the circuit on the circuit board. Silicone thermal pads are generally made of silicon and some metal oxides.

At present, there are many kinds of thermally conductive silica gel on the market. Generally speaking, silicane thermal pad is mainly used for electronic products and medical equipment that need to cool heat. Silicone thermal pad is widely used in the field of heat dissipation of electronic products. The thermal conductive silicon chip mainly uses silicon as the substrate, adds various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides, and then synthesizes a thermal conductive medium material through a special process. In the industry, this material is widely used. Known as thermally conductive silicone pads, thermally conductive silicone sheets, soft thermally conductive pads or thermally conductive silicone gaskets, etc.

The silicone thermal pad is mainly designed to transfer heat by using gaps to complete the heat transfer between the heating part and the cooling part. It can also play the role of insulation, shock absorption and sealing, which can realize the miniaturization and ultra-thin design of the equipment.

How to use silicone thermal pad?

The silicone thermal pad itself has a certain natural adhesion, so it is very convenient to use. When installing, it is necessary to ensure that the two bonding places are clean. This results in a very strong bond between thermal grease and adhesive products.

Almost all thermal silicon chip products use the same steps, this method meets the requirements of fast, simple and easier to use. In addition, according to the size of the place to be glued, it is enough to cut the silicon thermal pad appropriately.

If the silicone thermal pad can follow the above operating procedures, the service life is generally more than 5~10 years. Of course, this is not absolute. The service life of the silicone thermal pad will have a certain loss due to the difference between the manufacturers, so the service life will also be Changes, affected by these factors, the effective use time is also different.

In order to use the silicon thermal pad for a long time, it needs to be properly protected and operated according to the specifications, so that the product can be used better, thus greatly prolonging the service time of the thermally conductive silicon wafer and reducing the cost.
