Tgard™ K52 Series


High thermal and dielectric performance insulator pad from Laird Thermal


Laird Thermal's Tgard™ K52s are a series of high thermal and dielectric performance insulator pads consisting of a ceramic filled phase change compound coated on MT Kapton film. Tgard K52 phase change coating all but eliminates contact thermal resistance. The phase change coating melts at 52°C and reduces the contact areas that contain air. Tgard K52-1 is ideal for applications requiring the best thermal performing insulator material. Tgard K52-2 has a great balance of thermal, dielectric, and cut through performance. Tgard K52-3 is a 3 mil MT Kapton film that provides the best crush and cut and tear resistance available with thermal properties that are still in the high performance category.
