WACKER and Fuji Polymer Industries forged close collaboration on silicone-based thermal interface materials
WACKER and Japan-based Fuji Polymer Industries are intensifying their 'collaborative work on the development of innovative thermal interface materials today. To this end, Fuji Polymer Industries, a leading Japanese manufacturer of silicone rubber products, will use WACKER’s room-temperature-curing ELASTOSIL® silicones for manufacturing novel silicone-based heat-conducting components.
The companies will closely collaborate on developing high-efficiency thermal interface products for electronic devices and for batteries in electric vehicles. Components based on ELASTOSIL® will be presented at the 11th International Automotive Electronics Technology Expo 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, which starts on January 16.
WACKER and Fuji Polymer Industries are leading manufacturers in the field of silicone-based thermal interface materials (TIM) for industrial applications, but have different product offerings. As a silicones producer, WACKER supplies non-crosslinked paste-like silicones in the form of gels, adhesives, sealants or encapsulants for liquid metering, Fuji Polymer Industries produces ready-to-use silicone elastomer parts, such as contact mats, films and pads, for electronics and automotive component manufacturers.
