Electrically Conductive Thermal Grease - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hi There,

I am looking for a high performance thermal grease that is also electrically conductive. It must be a grease or a "non-curable" paste (cannot become hard with time), once must be cleaned by the time the power device is replaced. Everything I could find so far is either not a (good) electric conductor or is something that "cures" with time. Please, pass it on to me if anyone knows of such product.

Hi kalisteuma
I think you will find Emerson & Cuming produce a range of silicon greases that satisfy your requirement.
The only one of their conductive greases I have experience with has been a silver-loaded product that eventually goes hard, but only after several weeks elapse after application.
You should find something suitable amongst their range.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
