Thermal interface material for automotive applications
Laird Technologies Thermal Products has introduced a cost-effective insulator designed specifically for automotive applications.
The new flexible thermal interface material is said to be ideal for overcoming problems caused by metal debris in control modules that regulate engine performance, brake systems, power steering, power windows and other electrical systems.

These control modules are housed in rectangular casting pairs that are typically made of aluminum. The castings go through de-flashing and cleaning processes that remove most of the debris. The new material is thick enough to absorb and encapsulate metal debris without losing the electrical insulation value required in the application.

The T-gard 500 is available in a standard 0.009-inch thickness. Thicker versions are offered upon request.
