Unitika Unveils High-Heat Aromatic Polyamide

Unitika has developed a series of polyamide (PA) resins that can be applied in demanding thermal-management applications. The company has tailored specific grades for applications such as LED components and electric motor parts that are utilized in the auto and electrical/electronic sectors

Taking the Heat Out of Measuring Thermal Conductivity

Dr. Giles Humpston, Cambridge Nanotherm The critical importance of quickly removing heat from electronic components is well documented. In the case of LEDs allowing a design to ‘run hot’ drastically reduces component lifespan and significantly increases the risk of catastrophic component failure.
