THERMATTACH(reg) T410 thermally conductive, double-sided adhesive tape is for bonding heat sinks onto plastic IC packages. The tape features a silicone-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side of a 0.002-inch aluminum foil carrier. The tape's other side--a thermally loaded, high bond strength, acrylic PSA--bonds securely to metal heat sinks. Applications include bonding heat sinks to molded, plastic, ball grid array packages and other ICs that dissipate from 1 to 5W of heat.

What if algae borne of fertilizer runoff that pollutes rivers and lakes could be harvested and used as biofuel feedstock? What if the leftovers could be recycled into farm soil nutrients, eliminating at least some of the need for artificial fertilizers in the first place? Western Michigan University researchers have a plan.
Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
