Krayden, Inc., a leading distributor of engineered materials, introduces Dow Corning’s 340 Heat Sink Compound. The compound features a high thermal conductivity, providing low bleed benefits.
Dow Corning 340 is composed of a grease-like silicone-based fluid. The fluid is thickened with a heat conductive metal oxide filler that gives the compound its high thermal conductivity, low bleed benefits and high temperature stability. The compound can resist consistency changes at temperatures up to 350°F (177°C), resulting in a positive seal of the heat sink. This enables the compound to provide increased efficiency by improving the heat transport from the electronic device.
DC 340 is ideal for aircraft engines, LED applications, mounting studs of transistors, diodes and silicon-controlled rectifiers. Additionally, the compound serves as a thermal coupler for heat sink devices and is stable at high temperatures.
Dow Corning’s 340 compound is available in multiple packaging sizes from small tubes for individual use to drums for large scale operations and production lines. Additional information about Dow Corning’s 340 Heat Sink Compound, including technical data sheets, can be obtained by contacting Krayden, Inc., authorized distributor of Dow Corning products online.
