Thermal management considerations are often given less attention than concerns involving ability, price, power usage, and weight. But it’s important that engineers take into account not only the function of their design, but the environment in which it will operate and how it will be put together.

This paper outlines the advantages of silicone-based thermal materials, including Compressibility, Dryness, Sealing properties and Applicability to automated systems, and provides specific product solutions for multiple applications.
