Tgard™ 500 Series Insulator Material
Thicker Thermal Insulator Pad Prevents Electrical Shorts in Automotive Electronics Applications.
Tgard™ 500 is a medium thermal performance insulator pad consisting of a ceramic filled high temperature silicone rubber coated on electrical grade fiberglass.
Tgard™ 500 is designed for applications that require additional thickness to prevent electrical shorts from stamped aluminum heatsinks used in switching mode power supplies (SMPS) and debris from aluminum castings used in automotive motor controls.
Tgard™ 500 is used in applications that require an interface of 2.5ºC/watt or higher on a TO-220 mounted at 50 psi pressure.
