The Tmate™ 2900 Series is a reusable phase change material (PCM) designed for ease of testing and rework ability. It has a composite construction of a special malleable metal alloy and a high-performance PCM.
At 50°C, the Tmate 2900 Series begins to soften and flow, filling the microscopic irregularities of the thermal solution, thus reducing thermal resistance.
It shows no thermal performance degradation after 1,000 hours @130°C, or after 500 cycles from -25°C to 125°C. The PCM softens and does not fully change state, resulting in minimal migration (pump-out) at operating temperatures (see viscosity curve). It is available in three thicknesses: 0.005” (0.125 mm), 0.010” (0.25 mm), and 0.020” (0.5 mm).
