Thanks to their enhanced thermal management capabilities, these materials are enabling a new generation of electrical and electronic components that offer improved performance, reliability, and waste reduction. 3M™ Boron Nitride Cooling Fillers are a versatile family of ceramic fillers that improve the thermal conductivity of polymers while maintaining electrical insulation. Designed to meet the increasing need for “smart” polymers, these boron nitride cooling fillers can be formulated into many thermoplastics, elastomers, thermoset resins and adhesives. By functionally integrating thermal management with electrical insulation, boron nitride-filled compounds may even enable lighter, simpler component designs – which can reduce total system costs.
Thermally conductive materials are used throughout the vehicle. These include potting resins, heat spreaders, glues, greases, thermal interface material (TIM) foils & pads, and insulation foils. Injection molded thermoplastics used to make housings and sockets can also be made thermally conductive to help remove heat and keep components cool. Thermal management solutions are needed in electric motors, batteries, human machine interface (HMI) systems, sensors, ECUs, electronics and headlamps.
