Electrically nonconductive thermal pastes, which are desirable for avoiding short circuiting, have been attained using carbon (5 mum graphite or 30 nm carbon black) as the solid component, together with electrically nonconductive particles (fumed alumina or exfoliated clay). Both clay and alumina are highly effective in increasing the electrical resistivity for graphite pastes. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)Due to the high cost and limited choice of thermal conductors that are electrically nonconductive, the combined use of a ... a filler that is electrically nonconductive is investigated in this work for the purpose of attaining a thermal paste that isanbsp;...
