Panasonic Pyrolytic Graphite Sheets

Panasonic Pyrolytic Graphite Sheets

State-of-the-art material that answers the demands of today's applications.

High Thermal-Conductivity Material Opens Up Future Opportunities.

Panasonic Electronic Components' PGS or Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet is a heat spreading material with high thermal conductivity. This material is lightweight and highly flexible. It can be cut into custom shapes, making it extremely useful for applications with limited space. In addition, it has excellent thermal conductivity properties, 600 to 800W/(m-K), which is twice as high as copper and three times as high as aluminum. PGS can also be used as a clean and efficient alternative to silicone grease.

PGS is extremely effective in the development of equipment where temperature control must be attained in a package that is restricted due to downsizing, and where the packaging is lightweight. PGS is an ideal solution where there are I.C. heat sources such as CPUs, processors, power amplifiers, etc. that create hot spots that need to be diffused.
