LOCTITE® 315™ is a self-shimming thermally conductive, one part adhesive for bonding electrical components to heat sinks with an insulating gap. The high thermal conductivity provides excellent heat dissipation for thermally sensitive components, while the controlled strength permits field and service repair. The self-shimming property produces a consistent 5-6 mil gap between the component and the heat sink. This gap results in electrical insulation while maintaining thermal conductivity. Typical applications include bonding transformers, transistors and other heat generating electronic components to printed circuit board assemblies or heat sinks. In high pot applications this product should be limited to a maximum of 500 volts. Activator 7387TM is required for proper curing of Loctite® OutputTM adhesives.
LOCTITE 315 provides the following product characteristics:
