Application note for Softtherm Gap-Fillers
(series 86/200 , 86/210, 86/250 and 86/255)
Softthern materials are highly compressible,
best conformable, low-stress Gap-Fillers
Below you could find some „How to use“ notes to
make setup easier.
The above mentioned Gap Fillers are a combination of two basic materials:
1. 86/200 and 86/210: light pink side is the carrier for the conformable Gel itself (pink should face to the flat cover or case) 86/250 and 86/255: white side is the carrier for the conformable gel itself (white should face to the flat cover or case)
2. 86/200 and 86/210: yellow is the compressible and conformable soft side (SMD-side / rough surface side) 86/250 and 86/255: pink-red side is the compressible and conformable soft side (SMD-side / rough surface side)
Remove liner from soft conformable side (yellow on 86/200 , 86/210, pink-red on 86/250 , 86/255), and place Softtherm on the rough uneven or SMD-board side to conform arround the parts
Remove liner from carrier side (pink on 86/200 , 86/210, white on 86/250 , 86/255) and install case, cover or top plate.
If you use the K-Version with adhesive either on light –pink (86/200 , 86/210) or white (86/250, 86/255) side you might remove this adhesive protection liner first, place the carrier side to the case , flat cover side and before installing your application box you remove the liner on the GEL soft side.
Assembly your application and apply mounting pressure to make the material conforming around the parts, max compression should not exceed 30 % of original material thickness
Either way of the above you are welcome to ask our team if there are any further questions.
