3M™ Thermally Conductive Silicone Interface Pad 5516S is the same as 3M Pad 5516 but with a polymeric permanent film on one side for ease of reworking an assembly. Thermal Conductivity and Impedance slightly changes, dielectric strength is improved.
Features and Benefits
  • Good thermal conductivity (3.1 w/m-k)
  • Good softness and is conformable at low pressure ( Shore 00 =72)
  • Softness results in low stress on board components
  • Good dielectric properties
  • “S” version incorporates a thin polymeric film carrier for improved handling and a non-tacky surface for ease of rework
  • Slight tack allows pre-assembly. Good wettability for better thermal conductivity
  • UL 94 V-1
  • High temperature résistance
  • Tacky both sides
  • Thickness : 0.5 mm,1.0 mm, 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm, custom thickness
  • Larger sheet size is available
