Epic Polymers: Better heat flow in electronic building materials

Using plastics in electronic building materials can result in excessive temperatures caused by a heat build-up. Epic Polymers (Schotten / Germany; www.epicpolymers.de) says its "Star-Therm W" offers a unique solution to this problem since the plastics are both heat-conductive and electrically isolating.

The material´s good mechnical properties allow for thin-walled constructions, the company says. Possible applications include linear actuators, cascade motors and relays.
