A New Kind Of Polymer Heat Conductor

Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new kind of plastic material. The polymer thermal conductor, rather than insulating heat, dispels it and functioned as a heat conductor. The new plastic is malleable, lightweight, and capable of conducting about ten times as much heat as most commercial polymers.

Lengthy monomer chains create the polymers. Usually, such chains wind up snarled in a sphere, which traps heat conductors. Engineers remained determined to solve this issue and, for years, experimented with an assortment of polymer conductors, but none were successful. Then they began to consider whether a scattering polymer would work.

The engineers started using oxidative chemical vapor disposition (oCVD), which developed into a rigid polymer chain and not the usual ball of tangled strands. The oxidant was flowed into a chamber with a vapor of monomers. The unit oxidized and formed polymers and the engineers then fabricated large-scale samples (about the size of a thumbprint).

The polymer samples performed remarkably. They conducted heat at roughly 2 watts per meter per kelvin. Such was roughly ten times faster than conventional polymers. The engineering team plans to conduct more research and also experimenting with how the new material could possibly work with electronics and other products.

Ecomass Technologies

Since 1998, Ecomass Technologies has provided innovative solutions through advanced composite materials and engineered thermoplastics. It is the groundbreaking leader in patented, non-toxic, high density plastics, high density polymers, and high gravity compounds. Its products are used widely in a number of applications, including radiation shielding materials, gamma ray shielding, vibration damping material, frangible projectiles, and frangible bullets, and molded solutions.

Like MIT, Ecomass’ engineers work with its costumers, both government and private industry, solve physical property and material challenges. Their design expertise takes you a concept all the way to a finished product or part. And, they support you every step along the way.

All of Ecomass Technologies’ Compounds meet the EU RoHS Directives, are 100% lead free, and contain no toxic constituents or U.S. EPA hazardous materials. They also comply with the Dodd-Frank Act, Section 1502.
