Article and video explain how to remove thermal interface materials from heat sinks

By Josh Perry, Editor


In a new article from Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS), a leading-edge thermal engineering company based in Norwood, Mass., engineers will learn techniques for removing thermal interface materials (TIM), including thermal tape, thermal grease, and phase-change materials.


This article and video will explain how to remove thermal interface materials.

“Most of today’s TIMs are bonded to heat sink surfaces with a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer,” the article explained. “The rest of the TIM may be an elastomer filled with thermally conductive particles. Bonding pressure, such as from clips and screws increase the thermal performance, but the result can be a TIM that’s hard to remove from the heat sink surface.”


This article will outline step-by-step methods for removing these materials. Watch the video below to see the processes in action:
