Try flea=bay under "Sil-pad" as a search name. There is usually a bunch on sale there and MUCH cheaper then any of the suppliers..

Your looking for Sil-pad type insulators. Don't be surprised how much the regular vendors want for these insulators.

Sil pads and similar are available in sheet form.
I got some at Rapid.

You can also use Kapton (polyimide) film. You can purchase sheets of this stuff for cheap at that place with item numbers like this....


Use a good thermal grease on both sides.
