What is the principle of thermal paste? Will it conduct electricity?


Thermal paste is a material with thermal conductivity. This material has been widely used in televisions, computers, refrigerators, communication equipment, electronic products, rice cookers, induction cookers and other electrical appliances. Thermal conductive paste has an inconspicuous appearance and is widely used in electrical appliances that need to conduct electricity.

What is the principle of thermal paste?

The thermal conductive principle of thermal paste is to fill the gap between the CPU and the radiator so that the two are in full contact, which is more conducive to the transfer of heat energy during the working process of the electrical appliance.

The main raw material of thermal paste is organic silicone, and then some thermal conductive materials are added. If the thermal paste is used excessively, the excessively thick silicone grease layer will hinder the transfer of heat energy. Not only will it have no thermal conductivity, but it will also accelerate the burning of electrical appliances. Therefore, the thermal conductive silicone grease can be used in an appropriate amount. It does not mean that the more you apply, the better the thermal conductivity effect will be.

Will thermal paste conduct electricity?

Thermal paste is a silicone grease material with thermal conductivity. When working with good quality thermal grease, the silicone oil is "not easy to evaporate". If the thermal paste is of poor quality, the silicone grease will evaporate after a period of use and the surface will dry up. Or even crack, reducing thermal conductivity. Although thermal conductive silicone grease has good thermal conductivity, it does not conduct electricity and is an insulating material, so users can use it with confidence.

In fact, not all thermal pastes are non-conductive. Some thermal pastes use silver powder or aluminum powder as fillers. Although these metal fillers will increase the thermal conductivity, because the particles are relatively large, they will increase the conductivity, which is easy to occur during use. Leakage. For safety reasons, it is best to buy products with good reputations, such as TENSAN, which focuses on the research of thermal paste and provides customized thermal paste application solutions. It has a wide range of uses and can be used in new energy, military industry, medical, aviation, shipbuilding, electronics, and automobiles. , instruments, power supplies, high-speed rail and other industries.

Thermal conductive grease is an indispensable material in the current electrical appliance manufacturing industry. Users should pay attention to the separation time of silicone oil when purchasing. The longer the separation time, the better the thermal conductive silicone grease is, and the more secure it is when used in electrical appliances.
