A new heat isolating Thermal Management material from Panasonic. Don’t Just Spread Heat … Isolate It With NASBIS!

Many Thermal Management materials in today’s market focus on spreading heat or transferring heat away from a specific area within an electronic device, but in some cases this might not be enough. Engineers are now looking for ways to isolate heat. Along with this trend, devices are getting smaller, more complex and powerful.

At Panasonic, we are continuing our efforts to innovate in the Thermal Management market, and are proud to announce the release of our new Thermal Management material, NASBIS.  NASBIS stands for Nano Silica Balloon Insulator Sheet. Wrapped in Polyester tape, it is a thin, flexible heat Insulting Sheet composed of polyester fiber that has high thermal isolative properties and proprietary silica aerogel. To put things in perspective, air is a very good thermal insulator with a thermal conductivity rating of 0.015 W/mK whereas the NASBIS thermal conductivity rating can go down to as low as .014 W/mK.  Watch the video above to see NASBIS in action.

NASBIS is a special material that adds flexibility to an engineer’s Thermal Management toolkit. This material is similar to Panasonic’s PGS in that it packs a “big punch” in a small package. At roughly 1/10th of the thickness of standard insulation materials and twice the performance specs, NASBIS is thin enough to add in to small package devices with high power requirements. Our thickness offerings range is from 100um to 1000um.

NASBIS should also be considered for use in addition to PGS. These materials can work together to create staggering results in both heat reduction and heat isolation at the same time. Remember to stay flexible when looking for new thermal solutions. Panasonic has recognized that Thermal Management means more than just heat spreading in today’s market and Panasonic want to make sure today’s engineers are equipped for this.
