Recent developments in polymer additives and formulations have made available resins that have thermal conductivity that is one to two orders of magnitude higher than that of typical engineering polymers. Such polymers can be potentially used for designing heat sinks. There are two primary advantages of polymer heat sinks: ability to form shapes that may not be feasible with metal and flexibility that allows the heat sink to be bent in various shapes. This paper presents results from a study that was conducted to determine the suitability of commercially available Flexible Heat Sink Material for use in cooling high power LED’s.
