    SEMICOSIL® 975 TC - Semiconductor Components

    Tightly packed semiconductor components, such as IGBTs, in motor controllers and LED packages can become very hot. Such components are mounted on heat sinks to prolong their lifetime. The new thermally conductive SEMICOSIL® 975 TC silicone adhesive from WACKER bonds the parts mechanically and ensures optimum heat transfer.
