MATERIALS: Fujipoly introduces Sarcon® GR-Ae, an extremely soft Thermal Interface Silicone Gel Compound. Sarcon® GR-Ae is manufactured in sheet form and is designed to efficiently transfer heat from its source to a nearby heat sink. The unique physical properties of this material make it ideal for filling air gaps between delicate and uneven components.This high-performance gap filler compound offers a thermal conductivity of 1.3 W/m°K with a thermal resistance as low as .43 °Cin2/W. The gap filler pad is available in thicknesses ranging from 0.5 to 5.0mm. Sarcon® GR-Ae can be ordered in sheets up to 200 mm x 300 mm or die-cut to your exact application specifications.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
