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 electrical appliances such as televisions, computers, refrigerators, communication equipment, electronic products, rice cookers, induction cookers, etc. Thermal paste is not good-looking, but its application field is extremely wide. It can be used in any electrical appliance that needs to conduct electricity.

What is the principle of thermal paste?

The thermal conductivity principle of thermal paste is to fill the gap between the CPU and the radiator, so that the two can be fully contacted, and the electrical appliance is more conducive to the transfer of heat during operation.

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, when using thermal conductive silicone grease, it is enough. The more you apply, the better the thermal conductivity effect.

Will thermal paste conduct electricity?

Thermal paste is a silicone material with thermal conductivity. In the work, the silicone oil of good quality thermal paste is "not easy to volatilize". The silicone grease of poor quality thermal paste will evaporate after a period of use, the surface will become dry, and even crack, reducing the thermal conductivity. Although thermal paste has good thermal conductivity, it is not conductive and belongs to insulating materials. Users can use it with confidence.

In fact, not all thermal pastes are not conductive. Some thermal pastes use silver powder or aluminum powder as fillers. Although such metal fillers will increase thermal conductivity, they increase conductivity because of the large particles. It is easy to leak electricity during use. For safety reasons, it is best to buy products with good reputation, 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 applied to new energy, military, medical, aviation, shipbuilding, electronics, automobiles, instruments, power supplies, high-speed rail and other industries.

Thermal paste is an indispensable material in the current electrical manufacturing industry. Users should pay attention to the separation time of silicone oil when purchasing. The longer the separation time, the better the thermal paste and the like, and it is more assured to use it in electrical appliances.
