FUJI POLYMER INDUSTRIES and Munich-based chemical group company WACKER announced a joint co-operation on the development of innovative Thermal Interface Materials on 17th Dec, 2018. FUJI POLYMER INDUSTRIES will be using WACKER’s room-temperature-curing ELASTOSIL® silicones for the manufacture of silicone based heat-conducting components. The close co-operation will be on developing high-efficiency Thermal Interface Materials for electronic devices and for batteries in electric vehicles.
FUJI POLYMER INDUSTRIES produces ready-to-use silicone elastomer materials such as standard sheet form as well as roll materials, both types which can be customised to the Customer’s requirements and these being used for electronic components in many industry sectors as well as for the automotive industry. WACKER is a silicones producer, who supply non-cross-linked paste-like silicones in the form of gels, adhesives, sealants or encapsulates for liquid metering.
