TekNational, Inc.

Extra Soft Gel Pads/Gap Fillers

Teknational has a whole range of gap filling materials to fill voids up to .197"(5.0mm).  Even highly polished surfaces have irregularities which prevent them from making complete contact.  In typical manufacturing environments such precision polishing is not affordable, even if it would solve the contact problem.  To correct this, our gap fillers will minimize thermal resistance providing the best thermally conductive path.  Most of our gap fillers/gel pads are available in 9 thicknesses:

.20"; .039"; .059"; .079"; .098"; .118"; .126"; .157" and .197"

(0.5; 1.0; 1.5; 2.0; 2.5; 3.0; 3.2; 4.0 and 5.0mm)
