8617A silicone-free thermal grease is a heat sink grease with very high
thermal conductivity and exceptional wetting properties. The thixotropic
consistency helps ensure the paste conforms to the intricate geometry
at the component/heatsink interface while avoiding bleed and pump out
common with other pastes. 8617A has a wide operating temperature range,
making it a practical solution where high heat dissipation and thermal
cycling stability are needed. Once applied, circuits can be powered up
immediately offering exceptional convenience.
This thermal paste
is most often used as a gap filler on heatsinks to CPUs, LEDs, and other
electronic components. Its high thermal conductivity makes it ideal for
energy-intensive devices like thermal sensors, IGBTs, thermal wells and
The paste’s soft consistency allows easy compression to achieve thin bond lines, minimizing thermal resistance.
applications demanding higher thermal conductivity, we have the 8618
whereas our 8616 and 860 is suited for applications requiring less heat
dissipation. We also have a full line of thermally conductive adhesives
which provide a permanent bond and thermal gels which offer tack
adhesion where a low modulus material is needed.
