Default Greaseless thermal pads for OP devices

Just found this new greaseless product today:

ulTIMiFlux Dielectric Phase Change Thermal Material

I'm going to try these in my next project.

Cheers,

If he is, his time would be better spent driving sales elsewhere. I doubt Wakefield's stock price will move any just because a few DIYers decide to request some product samples. I suspect he just got excited about his new find - which is nice indeed...

So far keratherm is the reference standard, if they prove to better than that and reasonably priced, that will be impressive.

Looks like Keratherm is a smidge better. Where can I buy Keratherm products in North America? Mouser and Digikey come up empty and Kera's website is not helpful in finding distributors.

Tom I bought .5 sq meter of Keratherm several years ago from a US vendor I will try to find out the name. It wasn't cheap, but is nice to have, a ruler scissors and hole punch is all I have needed.
