Tgard 5000

Tgard 5000 Series

Thermally conductive electrically insulative material

Tgard 5000 is an excellent dielectric material with good thermal performance consisting of a polyimide film coated with a ceramic-filled, high-temperature silicone rubber.

Tgard 5000 is ideal for applications that require a delta temperature across the interface of 2.0ºC/watt or higher on a TO-220 clip mounted @ 50 psi pressure. Tgard 5000 has high dielectric strength for the AC side of a switching mode power supply. Tgard 5000 is tough resulting in an exceptional cut-through resistant material.

• High dielectric breakdown voltage of 6,000 volts

• Film base resistance cut through

• Thermal resistance of 0.40ºC-in2/watt @ 50 psi clip pressure

• Thermal resistance of 0.23ºC-in2/watt @ 400 psi screw pressure

  • • Switching mode power supplies
    • Electrial power generators
    • UPS units
