CoolPoly Thermally Conductive Elastomers

CoolPoly® E & D-series Elastomers
CoolPoly Thermally Conductive Elastomers exhibit thermal conductivity unsurpassed in a flexible, compliant and soft touch material.

Conventional elastomers are thermal insulators. The thermal conductivity of CoolPoly Elastomers range from 1.0 W/mK to 15 W/mK. This exceptional level of thermal conductivity in an elastomer is 5 to 75 times the value of conventional elastomers. The optimal level of thermal conductivity for any application depends on the power input, size of the part and the convection conditions. Cool polymers technical service staff can help engineers determine the appropriate materials for their application and heat transfer requirements.

CoolPoly Elastomers are available in either electrically conductive (E-Series) or electrically insulative (D-Series) grades. The CoolPoly E-Series Thermally Conductive Elastomers exhibit electrical conductivity in the range appropriate for shielding electromagnetic and radio frequency energy. The CoolPoly D-Series Thermally Conductive Elastomers isolate electrical energy and have a resistivity in the range 10
12 to 1016 ohm-cm.

CoolPoly Elastomers are thermoplastics and can be molded to 3-dimensional net shape objects with conventional injection molding equipment. Other thermoplastic processing (e.g. extrusion) is also possible. Elastomers are typically characterized by their hardness or Shore durometer. CoolPoly Elastomers range in hardness from Shore A 40 (similar to a soft eraser) to Shore D 80 (similar to a bowling ball). CoolPoly Elastomers are available in bag, drum, and Gaylord packaging.

CoolPoly Elastomers are used to transfer heat and therefore must withstand the application temperature. CoolPoly Elastomers have been used in applications up to 180°C. CoolPoly E-Series Elastomers are characterized by their hardness or Shore durometer in addition to their general thermal, mechanical and physical properties.
