The Bodo Möller Chemie Group announced that it is expanding its collaboration with Henkel Bergquist. The company will now offer Henkel Bergquist’s complete product family of thermally conductive materials for the electronic and electrical sector in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Benelux.
“Henkel offers comprehensive solutions in the market in order to solve the thermal challenges with thermally conductive yet electrically insulating adhesives, films and gap fillers. Demand has grown enormously, above all in automotive and aviation, but also in many other sectors. Hence, Henkel Bergquist is the ideal partner who can offer users a complete solution portfolio from one single source,” said Frank Haug, chairman of the board at Bodo Möller.
Additionally, an own plotter service offers customers of the specialty chemicals company the delivery of directly usable products such as Thermal GAP PAD®, Thermal SIL PAD®, High Flow (phase change materials) and Bond Ply, a two-sided adhesive solution for thermally stressed bondings. Besides ready plotted products, liquid materials such as Thermal Gap Filler are available.
With its own plotter and the newly established Cutting Competence Center, the Bodo Möller Chemie Group takes another step forward. “We see the growing demand among customers who receive not only products and expertise from a supplier like us, but also pre-produced products that can be directly processed. We guarantee the expertise and, along with it, always consistent quality of the products plotted by us,” said Berit Hoffmann, account manager at Bodo Möller.
“Heat conductivity is more than the lambda value, which indicates a thermal property. Through our consulting services, we support customers when they select the optimal TIM for the application while we can quickly deliver the parts for the series or sampling by using the plotter,” added Berit Hoffmann of Bodo Möller Chemie.
Thermal interface materials are increasingly used in the electronics sector—in battery packs, electric drives, modern automotive light solutions, power electronics—and they are equally needed by manufacturers and suppliers. The in-house Cutting Competence Center of Bodo Möller Chemie can digitally kiss-cut or through-cut the thermally conductive material in one operation. Afterwards, the components are checked and optically measured with a state-of-the-art measuring microscope. This makes almost all contours possible, and production can be displayed from the prototype to large-scale production. Thanks to the digital cut, flexible contour adjustments are possible. This way, the Bodo Möller Chemie Group can display the complete value chain for thermally conductive solutions—from selecting the technically most suitable material, also for the production and logistics chain, all the way to the cut. Cutting and printing can be performed in one step.
