F17 Normal thermal interface gap filler material by Thal - Purple
A blue circle is filled with evenly spaced horizontal black lines, creating a striped pattern reminiscent of LED modules. The lines make the blue color appear as alternating light and dark blue horizontal stripes within the circle against a white background.

F17 – Normal Gap Filler (Silicone)

Heat-conducting rubber

F17 is an ultra soft gap filling material formulated to thermally connect sensitive components and devices to nearby metal work or a cold wall.

Thal Article Number: F17

Performance Materials: Normal Gap Filler (Silicone)

F17 - Normal Gap Filler (Silicone)

F17 delivers excellent vibration dampening properties that protect pressure sensitive heat generating components from dimensional changes. Its softness allows for varying component heights and sizes to conform to the surface texture of the material. 

F17 delivers 1.7W/mK conductivity and is ideal for applications that re-quire a combination of good temperature stability, large temperature excursions and vibration dampening.
