Thermal properties-Conductive Epoxies

I am looking for complete thermal properties for electrically conductive epoxies. These properties are hard to come by (atleast from what i have seen online) and so I will take what I get and not worry too much about minor changes in components.

Thanks in advance....

RE: Thermal properties-Conductive Epoxies

What are you trying to bond?  We have used the TC-2707 from 3M.  Their website has all the technical data you would ever need and if that's not enough call them.....they have great technical help. http://www.3m.com/

RE: Thermal properties-Conductive Epoxies

Thanks Heckler,
Unfortunately I couldnt find what I was looking for in 3M. TC-2707 is thermally conductive (electrically insulative). I need electrically conductive.

RE: Thermal properties-Conductive Epoxies

I think the best thing to do is just call any company that makes an epoxy and tell them about your application. Then once you select an epox two things can happen:
(1) Sometimes, rarely, you can get them to do some mechanical tests for you. Sometimes they have the data hidden away and you just need to ask for it.
(2) Otherwise you have to do them yourself (i.e. send cured test coupons to a lab). By the way, don't be surprised if the materials aren't linearly elastic.

Then if 1 or 2 doesn't happen:

(3) Buy the material, apply it to your application, and test it. This can be costly if it fails, but a properly design test can give you a good basis to base and qualify future designs off of. You may be able to test it by similarity rather than using the actual 'expensive' components.
