Thermal Protection: Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet (PGS)

Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet (PGS) design engineers Panasonic
Panasonic PGS Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet

PGS (Pyrolytic Graphite Sheet) is a thermal interface material which is very thin, synthetically made, has high thermal conductivity, and is made from a highly oriented graphite polymer film.
Ideal for providing thermal management/heat-sinking in limited spaces or to provide supplemental heat-sinking in addition to conventional means.
This material is flexible and can be cut into customized shapes.

What is PGS Graphite Sheet?

A type of graphite made from Carbon, an artificial flexible graphite sheet developed by Panasonic ⇒Merit factors: light weight, high intensity, high stability, low environmental impact.

 

✔ Thin with high thermal conductivity: 5 times of copper
     Heat control available while remaining thin/leightweight
✔ Flexibility:Easily-worked (could be tiny or complex shape)
    More freedom in design than other sheet material like natural graphite or cooper sheet
✔ Shielding: electromagnetic wave
    Simultaneous solution for thermal and electromagnetic wave problem
✔ High stability: high grade carbon and high chemical stability
    Environmentally resistant, no deterioration with age
