3M can help data centers improve their cooling with thermally conductive tapes and interface pads for cooling within the server to convection and immersion cooling systems using 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids.
Novec Fluids for Heat Transfer
3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids are nonflammable, non-corrosive materials that offer an outstanding balance of heat transfer efficiency, low environmental impact and worker safety. Because of this, these inert cooling fluids are widely used for thermal management. In data centers, Novec fluids can be integrated into convection cooling systems because they allow heat to be quickly transferred from components.
3M™ Thermally Conductive Tapes and Interface Pads
3M Thermal Management Solutions offers a broad range of 3M Thermally Conductive Adhesive Transfer Tapes for a wide range of applications requiring thermal management solutions for bonding heat sinks, heat spreaders and cooling devices to IC packages, power transistors and other heat generating components
In addition, various 3M™ Thermally Conductive Acrylic and Silicone Interface Pads are available to provide good thermal performance with different thickness to fill the gaps between heat generating components and heat cooling devices.
Immersion Cooling using 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids
3M is currently developing an immersion cooling application using 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluid.
