Fujipoly Thermal Gel Sheets for LED Lighting
LED lighting gets cooled by thermal gel.
Carteret, NJ — Recent design trends have integrated LED lighting packages in thousands of consumer and industrial electronic platforms that range from aircraft landing systems to automotive headlights and complex industrial control panels.

One of the most challenging issues with the use of LEDs is the control of unwanted heat. The most common way to dissipate this performance-hindering byproduct is to connect the LED package directly to a heat sink. To maximize the cooling performance of the heatsink, Fujipoly offers its line of extremely soft Sarcon® GR-ae thermal interface materials.

The gel-like sheet compound is designed to efficiently transfer heat from its source to the nearby heat sink. The unusual physical properties of this material allow it to protect delicate board-level components as it fills unwanted air gaps and levels uneven surfaces. This high-performance silicone based compound is available in nine thicknesses that deliver a thermal conductivity of 1.3W/°K. Sarcon GR-ae is available in pre-cut sheets up to 200 x 300mm or die-cut to exact application specifications. In addition to growing LED lighting applications, the same thermal interface material has proven successful in helping to cool power control units, converters, inverters and batteries.
