Parker Chomerics Thermflow Phase Change Material

Parker Chomerics Phase Change Materials

Applications

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) are dry, thin pads that are placed in between a heatsink or component surface. Upon reaching the required melting temperature, the pad will fully change phase into a liquid to achieve maximum surface wetting for better thermal performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the material flow out when operational?

Material may flow when oriented vertically, especially at higher temperatures. This does not affect thermal performance, but should be considered if appearance is important.

Can Phase Change materials be removed?

Yes, heated up to 40°C and snapped apart with a sharp blade.  Please note, Thermflow pads soften as they reach component operating temperatures.

What should a bonding surface be cleaned with?

IPA or MEK, essentially dust free.

Are Phase Change materials electrically isolating?

Standard Thermflow products are electrically non-conductive, however metal-to-metal contact is possible after the material undergoes phase change, decreasing their electrical isolation properties. PC07DM-7 is the only Thermflow material recommended for use as a dielectric insulator.
