  • Filler for thermally conductive pastes
  • Filler for silicone resins, thermoplastics, hard plastics

Grade 308

This has a high degree of purity and crystallinity. The high purity, low density, and high thermal conductivity inherent to boron nitride make it a good filler for plastics whose thermal conductivity needs to be increased. At the same time, the electrical insulation properties are preserved. Thanks to its structure, low to medium filling levels are possible, which allows it to dissipate heat. It is very low hardness helps avoid tool wear, particularly with respect to aluminium oxide, magnesium oxide and other fillers.

Advantages

  • Electrical insulation
  • High heat dispersion
  • Impeccably clean
  • Large crystals
  • Average surface area
  • No abrasion of the final product
  • Minimum tool wear compared to other fillers due to its low hardness
