Leading thermal conductivity meets high compressibility

GraphiteTIM specially designed by Panasonic as Thermal Interface Material for IGBT, SiC and GaN power modules and other high power applications.
It offers highest thermal conductivity, simple installation and highly stable performance even after thousands of power cycles thanks to our highly crystallized graphite technology.

Panasonic GraphiteTIM enables an extended lifetime of your device while decreasing the total costs of ownership and simplifying maintenance work.

GraphiteTIM standard sheets for power Modules

 

  1. Low initial thermal resistance
     
  2. Stable performance for full lifetime
     
  3. Easy installation and handling

1. Low thermal resistance

GraphiteTIM Thermal resistance vs. applied pressure

The high thermal conductivity and high compressibility of GraphiteTIM effectively fills voids and flattens the surface roughness between the heat-source and heat-sink.

Initial thermal resistance is reduced by the applied pressure, reaching its optimum between 300kpa and 600kpa. 

 

2. Stable performance for full lifetime

GraphiteTIM - Stable performance over fill lifetime

Graphite is chemically stable for a long period compared to grease or phase change materials.

As solid sheet, it shows no pump-out or drying effects even after years of usage.

3. Easy installation and handling

GraphiteTIM - easy to install

Easy to attach and remove from the cooler and module.

No need for high equipment investment in production, simply exchange in the field is easily manageable.
