Conductive Silicones in Elevated Temperatures

With silicone’s insulative nature and large Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), sustaining conductivity as temperatures rise requires a special understanding of silicone chemistry and filler technology. Conductivity can be maintained by adjusting the type, amount, and the particle size and distribution of filler in the silicone matrix. This Application Note discusses the trade-offs one should expect when customizing silicone to remain conductive in elevated temperatures and help explain why changes occur.
