About Gap Pad®

Gap Pad® is a low-modulus polymer material that conforms to surfaces and fills microscopic surface gaps. A Gap Pad® is a solid, pre-formed rectangle or square that often serves as an interface between heat sinks and electronic devices. People also often apply Gap Pad® to smaller products that lack cooling fans. This polymer material prevents damage from uneven topographies, air gaps and rough surface textures.

Bergquist’s Gap Pad® thermal management products play an important role in a variety of electronics manufacturing applications. The company offers several Gap Pad® products, in a range of thicknesses and configurations.

Gap Pad® Features

Each electronic device has different requirements, and Bergquist manufactures a range of products to suit these diverse needs. Gap Pad® offers the following features:

  • Conformability: Can conform to rough, uneven surfaces, providing low-stress compression.
  • Corrosion control: Electrically isolating properties to prevent interface corrosion.
  • Natural tack: Helps the Gap Pad® remain in place during assembly.
  • Adhesive backing: Available with or without an adhesive backing.
  • Fiberglass reinforcement: Optional rubber-coated fiberglass reinforcement.
  • Rubber reinforcement: Rubber reinforcement option as an alternative to fiberglass.
  • Various thicknesses: Choose from available thicknesses between 0.010 inches and 0.250 inches.
  • Silicon-free option: Select a silicon-free Gap Pad® available in thicknesses between 0.010 inches and 0.125 inches.
