Tmate™ 2900 is a reusable phase change material designed for ease of testing and rework ability. Tmate™ 2900 has a composite construction of a special malleable metal alloy and a high performance phase change material.
At 50ºC, Tmate™ 2900 begins to soften and flow, filling the microscopic irregularities of the thermal solution, thus reducing thermal resistance.
Tmate™ 2900 shows no thermal performance degradation after 1000 hours at 130ºC, or after 500 cycles, from -25ºC to 125ºC. The phase change material softens and does not fully change state resulting in minimal migration (pump out) at operating temperatures. Tmate™ 2900 is available in three thicknesses, 0.005 in. (0.125 mm), 0.010 in. (0.25 mm) and 0.020 in. (0.5 mm).
