3M™ Thermally Conductive Silicone Interface Pad 5516 is a highly conformable, slightly tacky silicone elastomer pad. Designed to provide heat transfer path between heat generating components and heat sinks, heat spreaders or other cooling devices.

  • Good thermal conductivity (3.1 w/m-K)
  • Good softness and is conformable at low pressure ( Shore 00 = 50)
  • Softness results in low stress on board components
  • Good dielectric properties
  • Slight tack allows pre-assembly
  • Good wettability for better thermal conductivity
  • UL 94 V-0
  • High temperature résistance
  • Tacky both sides
  • Thickness: 1.5 mm
  • Larger sheet size is available

3M™ Thermally Conductive Silicone Interface Pad 5516 has a soft pad that conforms to uneven substrates, providing excellent wettability to fill gaps for improved thermal performance. The thin, firm, low-tack layer provides easy handling for pre-assembly and die-cutting. This pad provides robust thermal management for applications in a variety of market segments, such as consumer electronics, automotive, LED lighting, medical devices, communication infrastructure, and aerospace & defense.

Recommended Applications:
Heat transfer between PCB and heat sink
Integrated chip (IC) packaging heat conduction
Chip on film (COF) heat dissipation
Gap filling in electronic devices
Decrease of compression stress to electronic parts by thermal pad softness

LED displays
Electric vehicle (EV) batteries
Wireless charging units
Satellite navigation
Process control equipment
Test & measurement devices

Our family of 3M(TM) Thermally Conductive Silicone Interface Pads performs well in applications requiring high temperatures. The soft silicone pads conform to a variety of substrates.
