Power Transformers and Semiconductors

Power transformer (including chokes), switching semiconductors and electronic control units are the most critical components in power electronics applications from thermal management point of view.

Use of thermally conductive compound providing low stress solution is the key.
How do you protect sensitive electronics against overheating? Thanks to new thermally conductive silicone based compound call CoolMag™ to provide an excellent mechanically and thermally well connected critical components to heat-sink or cool plate.

The products can be cured at room temperature or quickly cured and relatively low temperature of polymerization thus making this heat sink for power electronics a clean, fast and simple solution

Automotive and High reliability Power Electronics

There are many electronic controls in Hybrid and EVs such as BMS, DCDC, OBC, onboard displays, RF-Antennas module, ECUs, etc.

All of them with low, medium or high level of power management. From small (0-30W) to medium (30W-3kW) or high (>3kW) energy, a properly heat dissipation is a challenge to keep reliability of the systems.
Typically, most of the systems try to conduct heat as quick as possible from hot-spot to a cold-spot. So, a proper thermally conductive resin (CoolMag™) to apply here is a must.

On Board Chargers (OBC), Inverters and DC/DC converters in Electric Vehicles

In Hybrid or electric vehicles there are a couple of special power supplies such as DCDC converters and On-Board Chargers.

Special care must be taken here with the power inductive components design from the thermal management point of view.

Thinking in thermal management join with electrical safety and electromagnetic design from the beginning is the Key for reliability success. Beyond design safety margin, this require a good heat-sink design, and a proper selection of thermally conductive resin (CoolMag™) not only from thermal conductivity point of view but also from diffusivity and its hardness (no-stress over magnetic core and other sensitive components).

Inter-cell coating and protection in batteries

There are potentially in the market many types of batteries: L-ion, LCO, NCM, NCA, LFP, BCM, LTO and others. Li-ion batteries have an unmatchable combination of high energy and power density, making it the technology of choice for portable electronics, power tools, and hybrid/full electric vehicles, due to Li-abundance, cost Vs energy and electrode transportation.
Anode materials are necessary in Li-ion batteries because Li metal forms dendrites which can cause short circuiting, start a thermal run-away reaction on the cathode, and cause the battery to catch fire.

So, here again, a proper thermal management is a must, to avoid any dangerous situation using a low viscosity thermally conductive compound removing all the air around cells and transfer all the heat to the cooling system.

Gap Filler to interface with liquid cooling in Battery Packs

Thermal management of battery system is one of the most limiting factors in the performance of lithium ion batteries for EVs.

During charging and discharging cycles, batteries produce heat energy. This energy must be removed or dissipated as fast as possible to a typically liquid cooling system.
How to do this, is the key to keep battery in a safely operation stage and given maximum performance and autonomy: using CoolMag™ resin low viscosity sticky thermally conductive filler with high diffusivity, to remove all air surrounding battery cells. The more area it covers the better the efficiency in heat transmission.
