Is there still an active Kerafol seller at diyA ?

(sharing a sheet with a few others, and ask a Euro sucker to send one over from the German RadioShack equivalent, is an alternate solution)

Not dissipates heat better the pads of aluminum oxide Fisher or Aavid?

I use Aavid and there is much improvement in temperatures ...

Hoi Bob, isn't this what you are looking for?

Warmtegeleidende folie Keratherm - Rood 86/82 Kerafol 86/82 (l x b) 100 mm x 100 mm Dikte 0,25 mm 6.5 W/mK in de Conrad online shop

I think that's what is mentioned in the article Jacco posted. (from EUVL)

BTW: nice article, Jacco ( and Patrick of course!)

Wow ! Lots of good choices. I'll check them out and report back on my selection. Still leaning toward a 1 mil thickness but that's not an absolute.

Thanks All

Edit: Don't know if I mentioned but another reason I am interested in the film (in a sheet) is use on larger surfaces. The pic is of a TDA7294 project that has a 3 1/4" X 1 1/2" common area. I'm still working on the liquid cooled discrete application which would require as much as a 4" X 11" contact pad. So cost also has to be considered. Simple grease might work but adding the thinnest film could assist the distribution over such a large area. Don't know yet.

Would you like me to show you a 4" x 4" mica sheet ?

(I've tried almost every plastic sheet variety, in close to 25 years. AlOx insulators from 3mm to 1.5mm, see my diamond blade artwork at the Krell thread. NO more, end of the line for me)

They are passing 10sec hand touch test with 0.6A/device bias. That was maximum possible for these heatsinks. But here now daytime temperature is 30deg Celcius. It will touch 40-45 during next couple of months. So keeping in mind that rise, I reduced bias to 0.55A/device.

Speaker grounds are taken from amp PCB. From PS ground(floating), wires go to earth ground isolator and amp board.
