FAQ's

Q.  Do I need special molding equipment to use your material?

A.  No, CoolPoly thermally conductive plastics are processed on conventional injection molding equipment.  Some minor processing conditions are sometimes recommended since the plastic readily changes temperature due to its thermal conductivity.

 

Q.  Will this material tear up my molding equipment/tool?

A.  No, CoolPoly thermally conductive plastics are not abrasive to machinery or tooling.

 

Q.  I have existing tooling.  Can I run your material as is?

A.  Yes, Additional recommendations from Cool Polymers may optimize molding conditions, however the existing tooling is a good first step.

 

Q.  I am developing a new design.  How do I design for thermally conductive plastics?

A.  Designing for use of thermally conductive plastics involves consideration of the total heat transfer in the application.  Cool Polymers' design guide and our engineering staff are available to assist in part and tool design.

 

Q.  Do any of your products have EMI-RFI shielding capabilities?

A.  Yes, the E-series grades are electrically conductive in addition to their thermal conductivity.  The electrical conductivity imparts EMI-RFI shielding possibilities.

 

Q.  How can I get a sample of your material?

A.  CoolPoly thermally conductive plastics are sampled as 3x3x1/8 inch injection molded plaques.  Sample quantities of injection molding pellets can be purchased.

 

Q.  Are all of your grades thermally conductive?  What is the difference between the E-Series and the D-Series plastics?

A.  All the CoolPoly grades have thermal conductivities significantly higher than conventional plastics.  The E-series grades are electrically conductive in addition to being thermally conductive.  The D-series materials are electrical insulators in addition to the enhanced thermal conductivity.

 

Q.  How do I know if I need a Cool Polymer?

A.  CoolPoly thermally conductive plastics help manage heat build-up in a device by spreading and dissipating the thermal energy.  In applications where heat transfer is required, CoolPoly thermally conductive plastics are a cost effective solution.

 

Q.  What determines the cost of thermally conductive plastics?

A.  Pricing is determined by the level of thermal conductivity, base resin, and the electrical characteristics and the quantity purchased.

 

Q.  Are material safety data sheets available for all the commercial CoolPoly grades?

A.  Yes, click here to request an MSDS sheet for a specific grade of CoolPoly.

 

Q.  Is a cosmetic finish achievable?

A.  A cosmetic finish is achievable in certain grades.  The E-series grades are only available in black.  The D-series grades are naturally light in color and colorants can be added.

 

Q.  Are your products RoHS compliant?

A.  Yes, Click here for complete details regarding RoHS compliance.
