A new line of thermally conductive compounds from Cool Polymers Inc., Warwick, R.I., is claimed to offer improved heat resistance and better heat dissipation for electronic devices such as injection molded bobbins, solenoids, ignition and clutch coils, and surface-mount coils. New CoolPoly formulations are said to provide heat resistance up to 280 C (536 F) and provide greater heat conductivity to other components (usually metal). Compounds are available in a range of resins from PP to LCP. Versions that are electrically insulative use ceramic additives, while both thermally and electrically conductive types use carbon-based additives. (401) 739-7602 • www.coolpolymers.com
