New thermally conductive thermoplastic compounds “open up significant windows of opportunity in terms of metal replacement and part consolidation in IC thermal management, direct encapsulation, heater systems, automotive, appliances and fibre optic communications,” says LNP Engineering Plastics’ product marketing manager Mark Kaptur.

LNP’s Konduit thermally conductive compounds provide ten to fifty times more thermal conductivity that typical unfilled and reinforced thermoplastics. The Konduit compounds are available in a broad range of resins, but LNP plans to focus more on crystalline resins to retain reasonable flow for these highly loaded composites.

Mack Plastics Corp. says its TCP thermally conductive plastics can conduct up to 600F with 20+ W/mK, which exceeds stainless steel.
