CHO-THERM® HIGH-POWER THERMAL INSULATOR PADS are thermally conductive materials designed for use where the highest possible thermal, dielectric, and mechanical properties are required.

Fiberglass cloth reinforcement strengthens CHO-THERM® pads against tear, cut-through and punctures.

These materials are available in sheet form and die-cut configurations. An optional adhesive layer (with PSA) is available on one or two sides. With a proven track record spanning several decades in multiple applications, these products are the first choice for high-end power supplies, industrial, aerospace, and military/avionics applications.

Available in several different forms to suit various applications.

Features/Benefits
  • Excellent thermal properties
  • High dielectric strength
  • Excellent mechanical strength and puncture resistance
