Gap Pad® Die Cutting

Gap Pad® Die Cutting

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.

As part of our commitment to providing comprehensive solutions for today’s manufacturers, American Micro Industries offers Gap Pad® die cutting to any shape or size. We can quickly turn around high-volume projects, and since we never impose a minimum order requirement, we’re an ideal partner for repair or prototyping applications.

About Gap Pad®

Gap Pad® is a low-modulus polymer material used as an interface between heat sinks and electronic devices. In smaller products where it is not possible to install a cooling fan, Gap Pad® solves problems associated with uneven topographies, air gaps and rough surface textures. It also provides low-stress vibration dampening and shock absorption, and improved puncture and tear resistance.

Each electronic device has different requirements, and Bergquist manufactures a range of products to suit these diverse needs. Gap Pad® is available with or without an adhesive backing, or with an optional rubber-coated fiberglass reinforcement. Its available thicknesses range from 0.010" to 0.250". As well, a silicone-free version is offered in thicknesses between 0.010" and 0.125".

For a full list of product specifications, or for assistance choosing the best Gap Pad® for your needs, contact an American Micro Industries representative directly.


Gap Pad®’s potential applications include electronics, automotive and medical device manufacturing. It’s designed to improve a product’s reliability by eliminating air gaps and reducing interfacial resistance. It is often placed between an IC or semiconductor and a heat sink, around a hard drive, heat pipe or power supply, or between any other heat generating component and a device’s chassis.

Bergquist sells its Gap Pad® in sheets that can be die cut to size. This requires a high degree of precision and accuracy, particularly when producing a large volume of components. At the same time, you need to keep your costs down, which is where American Micro Industries comes in.
