THICKER THERMAL INSULATOR PAD PREVENTS ELECTRICAL SHORTS IN AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS APPLICATIONS
Tgard™ 500 is a medium thermal performance insulator pad consisting of a ceramic-filled high-temperature silicone rubber coated on electrical grade fiberglass.
Tgard 500 is designed for applications that require additional thickness to prevent electrical shorts from stamped aluminum heatsinks used in switching mode power supplies (SMPS) and debris from aluminum castings used in automotive motor controls.
Thick enough to encapsulate burrs of stamped heatsinks
Preventselectrical shorts from stamped aluminum
High dielectric strength of >6,000 volts AC
Thermal resistance of 0.45ºC-in2 /watt at 50 psi
Thermal resistance of 0.35ºC-in2 /watt at 400 psi
Automotive motor controls
Switching mode power supplies - Stamped aluminum heatsinks
