Thermally Conductive Tapes
3M

This company introduces a new line of thermally conductive adhesive transfer tapes with increased mechanical strength for securely attaching heat sinks and heat spreaders. The 8805, 8810, 8815 and 8820 tapes feature improved surface wet-out for lower thermal impedance and higher adhesion. Elastomeric properties of the adhesive provide excellent shock performance, and high dielectric strength provides electrical isolation. To help increase productivity, the tape can be die-cut and pre-applied to one surface for later bonding.
