Dow Corning TC 5351 is a one part, non-curing, grey thermally conductive compound. This innovative product has good stability on vertical surfaces capable of a vertical gap-fill up to 1.0 mm. It is a grease like silicone that is full of heat conductive metal oxides. The combination promotes low bleed, high thermal conductivity and high temperature stability. The silicone product is suitable to be used as a thermally conductive material in power electronics.
Dow Corning TC-5351 has a viscosity of 1400 P at 25 degrees Celsius and the specific gravity is 3.1 when the silicone is uncured. The thermal conductivity is 1.9 btu/hr-ft-°F and the dielectric strength is 160 volts/mil. This advanced material increases efficiency in electronic devices by maintaining a positive heat sink seal to improve heat transferal from devices to the chassis or heat sink. If the device stays cool it becomes more efficient and reliable over time. Dow Corning TC 5351 is a thermal bridge that removes the heat from electronic devices. Automated or manual dispensing can be used when applying this material.
The thixotropy of Dow Corning TC-5351 is 2 and volume resistivity is 3.1E+13 ohm*cm. As electronic products become smaller and have a more impact design more heat will be generated. This silicone material is formulated for thermal management, decreasing or completely removing overheating. Dow Corning TC 5351 has low thermal resistance, high thermal conductivity and can achieve a thin bond line thickness that assists in improving the transfer of heat away from the device.
Before handling any material, it is highly recommended to read the product label and the material safety data sheet for safe use. Dow Corning TC 5351 has a minimal resistance to solvent exposure, but for the best results it is recommended to avoid solvent exposure altogether. The product should be stored in its original container with the lid tightly closed to avoid any exposure to contamination. The Shelf life will be clearly stated on the label. It has not been tested or deemed suitable for any medical or pharmaceutical uses. More about the safety precautions can be found on the Dow Corning TC 5351 MSDS.
