One-Part Liqui-Form 2000 from Bergquist Offers High Thermal Conductivity for Demanding Applications

The Bergquist Company announced the introduction of Liqui-Form 2000, the first product in a new ‘Liqui-Form’ product line. Liqui-Form 2000 is a highly conformable shear-thinning material which requires no curing, mixing or refrigeration; the product’s formulation delivers excellent thermal performance, low applied stress and a reliable long-term performance for the most demanding applications.

Liqui-Form 2000 is thixotropic and has a natural tack to ensure it forms around the components and stays in place in the application. Unlike traditional pre-cured gap filling materials, a liquid approach offers infinite thickness options. It also eliminates the need for specific pad thicknesses or die-cut shapes for individual applications. Precise amounts of Liqui-Form 2000 can be applied directly to the target surface, resulting in less waste and a more effective use of the material.

During extensive laboratory testing, Liqui-Form 2000 provided consistent and reliable thermal performance. This gap filling material is ideal for fragile assemblies or for filling intricate air gaps between electrical components. Liqui-Form 2000 is available in 30cc or 600cc cartridges and 5 gallon pail form, which makes this material well-suited for either manual or automated dispensing. The Liqui-Form product line from Bergquist will eventually encompass higher and lower viscosity materials.
