Future Heatsink Technology
Thermal conductivity of Thermally Conductive Polymers (TCP's) can be 50 to 100 times greater than the standard plastics. Even though metals are often chosen as LED heat sink materials, many application do not require this level of thermal transfer. Products made with Coolics technology combine LED cooling capabilities of metals with the customization, environmental friendliness and lower costs benefits of plastics.
According to the LED market analysts the polymer based heat sinks made out of the thermal materials in general lighting will reach market size of $1.1 billion in 2020 and are estimated to replace bulkier aluminum secondary heat sinks. This growth is mainly driven by the growing volumes in the general LED lighting industry and also by a rapid swift from traditional aluminium heat sinks to these type of new and more versatile materials.
Coolics is a patented technology where heat generating LED PCB is inserted to thermally conducting raw material by injection moulding. Products made of Coolics are made of proprietary combination of Thermally Conductive Polymers (TCP's) developed by world's leading material manufacturers – materials that are designed and tested to fulfill the high performance demands for the LED cooling applications.
