(Photo credit: Bdtronic, PR084)Henkel today announced the debut of its latest thermal interface material (TIM) innovation, Bergquist Gap Filler TGF 7000 (image). The liquid TIM is a major formulation breakthrough, as it effectively marries high thermal conductivity of 7.0 W/mK with a maximum possible speed tested of 18 grams per second, a combination which is currently the only one of its kind. With excellent throughput capability, the novel material is well-suited for applications such as automotive ADAS systems, power conversion systems, electric pumps and ECUs where mass production, reliability and high thermal conductivity are required for today’s smaller footprint, higher power designs.

Husco succeeds in automotive applications with ULTEM resin from SABIC

Husco variable oil pump control technologies made from SABIC's ULTEM™ resin. Husco was an early innovator in variable oil pump control technologies. These products improve efficiency by allowing engines to scale their oil usage in response to driving conditions. And for over a decade now, Husco has been developing and producing solenoid valves for a wide range of cylinder deactivation applications. These valves control engine systems that turn specific cylinders on and off in order to maximize efficiency and performance.High-performance automotive component supplier Husco says it is looking forward to continuing its collaboration with SABIC as it develops new innovations for next-generation vehicles based on ULTEM resin polyetherimide (PEI).
