THERM-A-GAP™ gap-filler sheets and pads offer excellent thermal properties and highest conformability at low clamping forces.

Features/Benefits
  • Ultra low deflection force
  • High thermal conductivity
  • High tack surface reduces contact resistance
  • "A" version offers high strength acrylic PSA for permanent attachment
  • UL recognized V-0 flammability
  • RoHS compliant


  • All products are available on aluminum foil (A) or on "clean break" glass (G) fiber carrier. As with all previous Chomerics gapfillers, the "A" versions have a high strength acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) for permanent attachment to the cold surfaces.
