Arctic Silver™ Thermal Adhesive

Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is a two part permanent adhesive for thermal joints in minimum bond line applications. It is NOT intended to be used between a CPU and the CPU heatsink. On a CPU please use a thermal compound such as Arctic Silver 5, Céramique 2, Arctic Alumina or Matrix. For proper use refer to the instructions here.

Features:

Characteristics:
Made with 99.8% pure micronized silver. 62% to 65% silver content by weight. Superior thermal performance.

Temperature Range:
- 40C to >150C (Bond strength is slightly weakened at temperatures below 0C due to crystallization.)

Negligible Electrical Conductivity:
Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity. NOTE: Even though Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is specifically engineered for high electrical resistance, it should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. The cured adhesive is slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridged two close-proximity electrical paths.

Compliancy: RoHS Compliant.

Components:
A set of Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive consists of two syringes containing a total of 7 grams of adhesive (3.5 grams each of parts
A and B) and a plastic reusable mixing wand.

Although heavier per set than Arctic Alumina Adhesive due to its use of silver rather than ceramic, each set of Arctic Silver Adhesive 
contains the same amount of adhesive by volume as a set of Arctic Alumina adhesive and will cover the same area. Approximately
3cc total adhesive.

Storage:
Arctic Silve Thermal Adhesive should be kept cold and away from UV light (sunlight and florescent lighting). We recommend refrigerating the unused material and allowing it to come to room temperature prior to use.

Precaution:
Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is a permanent adhesive. Components you attach with Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive will
stay attached forever.
