Plastics are poor heat conductors. The thermal conductivity of polymers, including those with glass-fibre and carbon-fibre additives, lies between 0.1 and 0.4 W/mK. By including special additives, we are able to supply materials with more than 40 W/mK. Electrically conductive and electrically insulating products are also available.
An up to 200-fold increase in thermal conductivity with LUVOCOM® TC
Highly sought-after in many industries
Wherever it is necessary to avoid overheating, thermally conductive materials are in demand. In the electrical and electronics industries, the heat dissipation from casings used for coils or housings for hard discs and other mass data storage devices can be increased through the use of thermally conductive LUVOCOM® TC. The geometric design here is extremely flexible: during injection moulding cooling fin structures can be achieved to allow even components with complex shapes to be completely enclosed. In mechanical engineering LUVOCOM® TC is suitable for friction bearings and motor housings. And in the automotive sector, too, there are numerous possible applications for electronics components and lighting.
