Thermal Interface Materials

Thermal interface materials available through Aavid cover the full array of material needs including thermal pads and films, hardware, and phase change materials. Many can be factory applied to our heat sinks or thermal solutions to save you time and assembly costs. Backed by Boyd’s high precision material converting capabilities, the thermal division provides high volume, custom cut shapes of materials to fit any design requirements. Additionally, Aavid engineers are available to help you choose the right interface materials for your design requirements.

Aavid and Boyd's design engineers have historically specified solutions from a multitude of world class thermal interface material portfolios, including Aavid Kunze, Boyd's TransTherm lines from Europe and Asia, as well as Aavid's standard North American TIM lines. We are working hard to streamline our TIM offerings to the highest performing, best cost solutions available today and appreciate your patience. Should you have any questions on selecting the best thermal interface material solution for your needs, please contact our sales or engineering teams today.
