Thermally Conductive Acrylic Foam Tape

Thermally conductive acrylic foam tape has been designed to offer superior transfer of heat for LED units, heat sinks and other electrical components.

Thermally Conductive Acrylic Foam Tape for Superior Heat Transfer


Thermally Conductive Acrylic Foam Tape provides superior heat transfer for LED units and electronic components.  Our thermally conductive adhesive tape has been designed to offer superior transfer of heat for LED units, heat sinks and other electrical components. Requirements for lighter weight materials, improved heat dissipation and rapid assembly makes thermally conductive Vhpb tape the preferred choice for applications throughout the automotive, electronics and aerospace and defence industries.

Adhesive tape technology is revolutionising manufacturing and assembly techniques. Demands for reducing size, weight and costs whilst increasing functionality means joining methods such as mechanical fixers and two part adhesives are being replaced by adhesive tape based solutions. Tecman is at the forefront of developing these solutions.

Our Application Engineers have an in-depth understanding of Automotive, Electronics and Aerospace and Defence industries. They have extensive experience of working along-side Design Engineers within these fields to specify adhesive tape based solutions for bonding heat generating components to heat sinks or other cooling devises.
