NASA outgassing results
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) criteria for low-volatility materials limits the total mass loss (TML) to 1.0% and collected volatile condensable material (CVCM) to 0.10%. Outgassing results for GEL 75 are 0.18% TML and 0.05% CVCM. Independent laboratory results indicate THERM-A-GAP GEL 75 passes the NASA outgassing criteria for low-volatility material.
Based on these results, THERM-A-GAP GEL 75 demonstrates the ability to withstand long-term aging without a reduction in thermal performance. THERM-A-GAP GEL 75 is best suited for high volume, automated production, specifically found in telecommunication applications, base stations, power supplies, and memory and power modules.
Alternative thermal gels
For applications that do not require extremely high thermal conductivity values or where the cost factor or a silicon free material for example is more important, the materials THERM-A-Gap GEL 25 NS (silicone-free), THERM-A-Gap GEL 30 and THERM-A-Gap GEL 45 are also available.
