Q-Pad II is a clean alternative to thermal greases that can be extremely messy. Cleanliness in critical applications can come at a premium. However, with Q-Pad II, cleanliness is no-longer a challenge. Q-Pad II is an aluminum foil coated on both sides with a Sil-Pad rubber to offer maximum thermal transfer performance. Q-Pads by nature are not as elastomeric as their Sil-Pad counterparts, but offer great thermal performance at 2.5 W/m-K. This material is very hard at 93 durometer, Shore A. It offers the revered UL94 V0 flame rating. Lastly, it offers an impressive temperature range similar to other Sil-Pads, -76°F – 356°F. Some applications for Q-Pad II include between transistors and heatsinks, or between chassis and heatsinks. The availability of Q-Pad II is nearly as diverse as its uses.
This material comes in an elegant black. Q Pad II is also known as SIL PAD TSP Q2500. This material is offered plain or with PSA (pressure-sensitive adhesive) on one side. In addition, this material is offered in both sheet and roll form. For this reason, much bigger parts are normally fabricated out of Q-Pad II. NEDC oftens die-cuts custom parts out of Q-Pad II. If you feel you have an application that could utilize this material or would like a quote, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. NEDC keeps stock of the non PSA version of Q-Pad II.
