Driving Higher Voltage, Power and Energy Efficiency
As the pressure rises to make smarter use of energy resources, demand grows for more innovative, efficient insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) power modules. These advanced devices are finding increasing use in a wide range of applications, including variable speed drives, solar inverters, wind power converters, uninterruptable power supplies, power transmission systems, electric vehicles, rail and marine transportation.
Dow Consumer Solutions' advanced silicone solutions can help ensure IGBTs perform reliably after long exposure to extreme temperatures, mechanical strains and harsh chemicals.
Silicone gels from Dow Consumer Solutions cure into a soft material that remains stable even at high temperatures while delivering excellent dielectric insulation. We offer gels for a range of IGBT operating temperatures, as well as tougher grades with improved mechanical strength to prevent bubble/crack generation in high voltage applications.
In addition to gels, Dow Consumer Solutions offers one of the broadest selections of silicone adhesives available for advanced PCB system modules. Encompassing a range of viscosities and cure chemistries, these advanced materials perform reliably over a wide set of operating temperatures, deliver excellent unprimed adhesion and provide mechanical stress dampening.
For managing the high temperatures of IGBT modules, Dow Consumer Solutions also offers a versatile range of thermally conductive silicone materials that effectively channel damaging heat away from sensitive components to enhance overall reliability and performance.
