3M Thermal Pads for xEV Battery

  • 3M™ Thermally Conductive Acrylic Interface Pads were developed specifically to manage and conduct heat. They deliver excellent dielectric strength and are suitable for use between heat-generating components and heat sinks as well as cooling plate applications. This unique combination of heat management, heat conductivity and electrical insulation makes our thermally conductive pads a high-performance choice compared to silicone, with no siloxane outgassing. As a global manufacturer, we provide reliable quality and performance. These conformable, compressible, UL listed pads are easily die cut and can be applied manually, semi-automated or automated.

Key benefits for xEV battery assembly and production

    Quick positioning and repositioning

    Our thermal pads feature a light adhesive tack, and select versions are available with highly durable film permanently attached to one side for fast positioning and repositioning during pre-assembly and final assembly. This material is supplied in rolled format suitable for manual and automated processes.

Key benefits for xEV battery lifespan and durability

  • silicone-free icon

    3M thermally conductive acrylic interface pads feature an elastomeric acrylic base that contains almost no siloxane – a compound that can compromise your design. In fact, our acrylic thermal pads contain up to 1,000 times less detectable volatile siloxane content​ compared to silicone pads. The material is available in a variety of compression/recovery rates for very high wet out on uneven substrates.

  • thermal management icon
    Improved thermal management

    Improved thermal management and dielectric strength and helps enable desired pressure consistently in xEV battery components. 3M thermally conductive acrylic interface pads are tested for flame retardance to V0. Select versions are available with highly durable PET film permanently attached to one side for use in higher-temperature applications.
