Does thermal grease have restrictions on the use of electrical appliances?

2022-09-19


Thermal grease plays a vital role in the electrical appliance manufacturing industry. Unlike other adhesives, thermal grease will not cure after being applied, and the next step of construction can be carried out without waiting. In order for thermal grease to perform well, in addition to product quality, it is also necessary to pay attention to construction methods.


How long does the thermal grease performance last?

The shelf life of thermal grease performance is closely related to the quality of the grease. Good quality can maintain thermal conductivity for a long time, while poor quality thermal conductivity will decrease or even disappear after a period of time. For this reason, it is recommended to buy high-quality products when purchasing, such as TENSAN, which can not only focus on the research of thermal grease but also provide customized thermal grease application solutions, which are widely used and can be used in new energy, military, medical, aviation, ships, electronics, automobiles, instruments, power supplies, high-speed rail, and other industries.

Does thermal grease have restrictions on the use of electrical appliances?

Thermal grease does not corrode metal and has no effect on human health. As long as it is applied to the middle of the heating element of the electrical appliance and the heat dissipation facility, it can exert heat dissipation performance. There is no restriction on the use of electrical appliances.

Thermal grease construction precautions:

1. Although any electrical appliance can use thermal conductive silicone grease since there will be a small amount of silicone oil oozing out during the use stage, it should not be applied to relays with exposed contacts around to avoid contamination by the oozing silicone oil, which may lead to continuous electricity.

2. Pay attention to the thickness during construction. It is not that the thicker the coating layer, the better the thermal conductivity. In the case of ensuring that the gap is filled, the thinner the better, so as to exert good heat dissipation performance.


Thermal grease is a non-toxic chemical, and there is no danger during storage, but it should be kept away from children. It can be stored in a ventilated and dry place for a long time. Generally, the shelf life of unopened silicone grease is 12 months. After the shelf life is used up, the thermal conductivity will decrease once the shelf life expires.
