Heraeus to Introduce CoolStrates™ Using Celcion™ Thick Film Paste

Heraeus Electronics, a world leader in electronic packaging materials and technology, will soon unveil CoolStrates™, a new line of circuit boards made with Celcion™ Thick Film Paste. These innovative boards utilize cooler aluminum substrates, resulting in improved thermal management, performance and cost in LED systems.

CoolStrates™ allow customers to easily apply the LED chip, thus reducing steps in the manufacturing process and enabling more efficient production. They are available for chip-on-board, chip-on-heatsink and standard packaging technology.

“We are constantly seeking ways in which we can improve our products and processes for customers with cutting edge innovation and ideas,"  said Mark Challingsworth, R&D Manager at Heraeus. "We feel we’ve done just that with CoolStrates™, and we’re looking forward to introducing it to the market.”

The Celcion components used in CoolStrates™ are recognized by Underwriter Laboratories (UL®).
